LIFE IN A CALIFORNIA MISSION, 1790s
Had You Lived Then
Describing the influence of the missions on the development of the state, this instructive program contrasts the life of the Indians before and after they came to reside in the missions. Innovations such as wheel-thrown pots, olives and wine grapes, woolen clothing, and adobe structures built to last are shown replacing baskets, nuts and berries, deerskin clothing, and temporary straw buildings. The tour concludes by explaining what caused the power of the missions to dwindle.
