Also, every day the men killed cattle and sheep to make wool and hides . The Indians went to church and the the women made clothing out of hides and wool. They would trade cloth to get food. Some of the food they ate were ground corn, atole, mutton, and beans. When they had free time they would play different games. One game was played by using your hands, sticks, and poles. You would throw a few sticks in the air and see if the number was odd or even. If you said odd and it came out even, the person that said even would win. The loser had to pay the winner in white shells. Their schedule is to wake up at 6:00 am to do chores, eat breakfast and then go to church. Then they went to work.

The Foundation of Mission San Rafael Archangel

The Construction of Mission San Rafael
The impact of Mission San Rafael on the native cultures was devastating because they were forced to change their way of life. The purpose of the mission was to spread Cathlocism, which ended up forcing the native tribe to change their beliefs. In addition, different products were introduced by the missionaries leading to the creation of new tasks and jobs for the Native Americans. As the spanish settlers arrived in California, they brought with them a new diet and diseases, which caused many deaths among Natives. The Miwok Indians grew crops like wheat and corn. Also, the Indians raised livestock and they built their own village in 1817. They made clothes by sewing wool and other materials. As one can see, the Miwok tribe had to change their way of life. The mission's impact on them was irreversible.
Mission San Rafael Archangel had an interesting beginning. Mission San Rafael was built in 1817 as a sub-mission for Mission San Francisco Asis. It was built to be a hospital for sick Native Americans. The location was chosen because the weather was better than San Francisco. The founding father was Vincente de Sarria. In 1823, it was granted a full-mission status because it grew to be 1,000 people living there. Once it became a mission it started to grow.
The construction of Mission San Rafael began in 1817 and ended in 1823. When they made the church they made it out of adobe because it is a material that makes it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Mission San Rafael got materials from Mission Dolores, Santa Clara, and San Jose. Then, it was rebuilt in 1949 and now used as a real church.
Mission San Rafael needed a strong economy to survive. They planted wheat and corn. In the vineyard, they raised cattle and sheep. These things were used for trading and serving visitors. It became a self-supporting mission. This is why Mission San Rafael had a strong economy.
