Officially listed as Mission Indians, the Native American of Southern California were from various tribes, Christianized at the Missions. The Padres at this Mission called them Diegueños. In coastal areas families made their homes of tule, inland they were made of brush or branches. The native people came to the Missions seeking food and education and once converted to Christianity, were considered neophytes.

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started because of my love for the California Missions and interest in History. I don't allow paid advertising (but this may change). This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
