1800’s people started visiting. Santa Barbara has many visitors to the museum, library, and to the archive.

The archive are records that the Chumash once inhabited their region. In the mission they have six bells in the church. Religious paintings and beautiful sculptures decorate the church. In 1925 a earthquake knocked down some of the towers, but most of Santa Barbara is still standing today. In 1950 people donated 400,000 dollars to rebuild.

Take a Stand

The mission system started in early 1769.Father Junipero Serra built the first the first mission in San Diego Bay. The started the mission system because they wanted to convert Indians to Christianity. Also the Russians wanted claim land from the Spanish.

I think that the mission system was unfair because the Native Americans were forced to do what the missionaries and soldiers told them to do. If the Native Americans didn’t do this they were beating down and locked in jail or in shackles. Another reason was many of the missionaries and the soldiers were treating the Native Americans like slaves! All the missionaries wanted some kind of order from the Native Americans and the Native Americans had to fallow the strict rules and they couldn’t do what they want. The last reason I think the mission system was unfair was because Native Americans had to do tasks when they were told like when the bell rang they had to do something like their job and the Indians were pushed really hard to do tasks. That is why I think the mission system was unfair.
