ABSTRACT
Large herds of cattle grazed the pastures of San Francisco Solano. The meat from the cattle and from wild elk was a major source of food for the people living at the Franciscan mission. A section of the mission grounds was set aside for the matanza, or slaughter. Workers collected the fat from the slaughtered animals to use for cooking. Hides from the slaughtered animals were stretched and then staked to the ground to dry. Workers shaped the skins into sturdy leather for saddles, shoes, and the seats and backs of chairs.
