The Mission Today

My mission is used today as a museum, so people can explore San Francisco de Asis. The mission system ended because Spain and Mexico went to war, and in 1821 Mexico won. The mission changed California because the Spanish missionaries fought back. Before the missionaries came, the Indians got food from natural resources. They hunted and picked fruits and berries. The missionaries changed how people got their food. They made aquaducts to bring water. They taught the Native Americans how to plant crops.
