The religious beliefs and traditions of Indians of California teach that blessings of a rich land and a mild climate are gifts from the Creator. Indians show their love and respect for the Creator and for all of creation, by carefully managing the land for future generations and by living in harmony with the natural environment. Over the course of many centuries, Indians of California organized small, independent societies. Perhaps one of the key lessons to be learned from an honest and evenhanded account of California's missions is that Indians had something important to teach Spaniards and the people who came to the region later.
