ABSTRACT
The article presents an introduction on California's missions. 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. Over the course of many centuries, the Indians of California organized small, independent societies. Spain established religious missions along the coast to anchor its empire in California. Thousands of mission Indian descendants proudly continue to practice their native culture and to speak their native language.
