Transcript of Texas Missions

The Spanish Missions
in Texas 1682 - 1757

Purpose of the Missions -
1. Teach the Native Americans to be Christians
2. Teach the Native Americans to work for the Spanish as farmers, carpenters, potters, or blacksmiths.
3. Keep the Spanish claim on Texas and KEEP THE FRENCH OUT!
Native American Children went to
school to learn religion and Spanish
Native American Women wove cloth, made
pottery, or cooked.
Native American Men worked as farmers,
learned woodworking or blacksmithing
The first mission built
in Texas was Corpus
Christi de la Ysleta in
the Lower Valley of El Paso
in 1682
El Paso
The First Mission in East Texas
was Father Massanet's mission called San Francisco de Los Tejas
in 1690.
The Mission for the Tejas people failed.
Drought destroyed the crops, disease killed
the Native Americans, and they did not
want to become Christians. Spain decided
to abandon the mission and not waste
any more money on settlements so far from
other Spanish settlements.
In 1699, Mission San Juan Bautista
was built. Later, the Spanish built 3
more missions, and added a presidio
(fort). This Spanish settlement became
a very important crossing from Mexico
into Texas, and served as the starting point
for expeditions into Texas.
When a small group of
French explorers arrived at
San Juan Bautista in 1714,
The Spanish again became
alarmed about the French in Texas
and decided again to build
missions in east Texas
near the Louisiana border.
When the Spanish returned to east Texas, they
rebuilt San Francisco de las Tejas and added the Presidio Nuestra Senora de los Delores do los Tejas. The presidio protected the mission from French and Indian attacks.
The Spanish realized getting supplies was very difficult because New Spain (Mexico) was over 500 miles away. Spain decided to build a settlement between their east Texas missions and New Spain.
In 1718, Presidio San Antonio
de Bexar was built to serve as the
midway point between the east Texas
missions and New Spain. Many of the Spanish
soldiers brought their families with them
and decided to build a permanent
settlement.
The Spanish eventually
built 5 missions in San
Antonio because the different
groups of Native Americans in
the area didn't get along with
each other.
San Jose
San Juan
Concepcion
Espada
San Antonio de Valero

Eventually, most of the Spanish Missions in Texas

were too far away from other missions, and the

of life. However, The Spanish settlements

From 1492 to 1763
three European powers claimed land
in the North America:
Spain, France,
and England (aka Great Britain).
Spain claimed Texas in 1519,
but didn't do anything with the
land until the French built a fort
in Texas in 1685.
The Spanish believed the French were
trying to take over Texas, so they started
building
Spanish Missions
to show that
the land was theirs.
Mission San Juan Bautista
