How were the Indians treated on all twenty one missions?

Generally all of the missions mistreated the Native Americans living at the mission or in the area. They were forced to work at misson, not allowed to practice their customs, not allowed to speak their language, and to convert to the Catholic religion. Mass graves have been found at the missions that contain Native American bodies. It was not a good life for the Native Americans.

How was mission life for Native Americans?

According to the school system it was a happy place where Indians learned many skills. But they fail to mention the fact that the herds the Missionaries brought in ate or destroyed the indigenous plant life, starving and offsetting the Indians as well as the indigenous animal life, further starving the Indians who were healthy and self sufficient hunters and gatherers. Missionaries promised food and shelter (which would not have been needed if not for their destruction) and lured Indians into the missions, but once there they were sworn to the allegiance of Spain and not allowed to leave unless by permission. To attempt to flee was punishable by flogging. Essentially they were work camps. The Indians were pretty much slaves. Also, the Indians had no immunity to European disease so almost 50% of the entire population was killed by disease alone. Chicken pox, Measles, and Malaria had never been seen in the Americas before. The Missionaries may have had good intentions, if you believe that telling one person that their religious beliefs are wrong and yours are right, but their mission of colonizing the Indians, turning the missions into profitable ranchos run by the Indians and then giving the land back to the Indians (they had a ten year plan to complete this goal) was an utter debacle. It is without question that the true impact of the Missionaries and their Missions lead to the rape of both their the Indian people and their land, death, and misery for the Indians who before this interference from Spain had lived a quiet, natural life in a naturally abundant land.

Why did horses change the lives of the Plains Indians?

The horses changed lives of the plain Indians because before the horses the Indians used dogs to transport goods from one area to another, but now with the horses, they can transport much larger quantities. Also the horses could transport people to distant places in less time it would with dogs.By Taj :)

How did life change for Indians after the missions?

Missions were brought into Indian lands by Christians wishing to covert people to the Christian faiths. But Indians had and still have their own set of religious beliefs. The missions did convert some Indians; some sociologists and Indian tribes assert that these conversions diluted or altered the Indian traditional spiritual beliefs. Many missionaries were quite aggressive, as well. While a tribe may have only needed help with food, for example, some missionaries withheld "needs" until the Indians converted (conversion by aggression). It's important to note that most European settlers regarded Indians as "heathens" with their distinctive clothing, use of animal furs, bird feathers, mystical traditions, and their (in the European's opinion) total disregard for the "One God" or "Triunal God" of Christianity. But, Indians long believed in nature's God, and worshipped in ways specific to their historical culture. Rather than being "heathens", Indians practiced a rich spiritual life that still exists today. Another big effect of European missionary work was that missionaries brought diseases that the Indians had not been exposed to before; the Indians had no need before to develop antibodies and natural defenses to those illnesses. Therefore, many Indians fell sick and died after missions opened in their area. Missions affected all aspects of Indian life and Indian ways. It may help to read about some of the historical mission sites and read about the Indian tribes that had lived or do live in that area.
