ABSTRACT
The religious beliefs and traditions of the Indians of California teach that the blessings of a rich land and a mild climate are gifts from the Creator. The 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. These age-old beliefs and practices stood in sharp contrast to the policies of the Spaniards who began to settle areas of California in the late 1700s. Instead of continuing to hunt and gather their food, the Indians were made to work on religious missions established by Spaniards, where farming supported these settlements.
