After 10,000 years, the people of South Texas found their cultures, their very lives under attack. In the early 1700s Apache raided from the north, deadly diseases traveled from Mexico, and drought lingered. Survival lay in missions. By entering a mission, they foreswore their traditional life to become Spanish. They accepted a new all-knowing god and pledged fealty to a distance and unseen king.
