San Antonio Missions National Historical Park
After 10,000 years, the indigenous people of South Texas found their cultures and their very lives under attack. In the early 1700s Apache raided from the north, deadly diseases traveled from Mexico, and drought lingered. Survival lay in the missions. By entering a mission, the people forswore their traditional life to become Spanish, accepting a new religion and pledging fealty to a distant and unseen king.
