History and Colonism
Jesuits, Dominicans, and Franciscans were all Orders. And what they did was spread Christianity throughout Baja California to the Native Americans or Indians. These orders established religious outposts throughout Baja California. Those missions introduced European livestock, vegetables, and fruits. Soon after, the Indians were impacted by the European diseases and made a huge decrease to the population of the Indians.
