San Antonio Missions: Spanish Influence in Texas explores a group of 18th-century missions in modern San Antonio to learn about the Spanish influence on native peoples and the patterns of Texas culture. Students can learn about the psychological and cultural factors that led the Coahuiltecan Indians to accept mission life and how irrigation systems, such as acequias, assisted in the development of Texas farmland and other arid areas.
