Back in the late 1700s the Spanish arrived, they had already conquered almost all what was to be mexico, enslaving all the indians that they could making them work in the gold mines, the Spanish conquistadors were mainly interested in the gold and they used the indians to work the mines. And the Spanish Catholic monks that came with them represented a benevolent God that had to be worshiped or you would be executed.
Today the descendants of the Indians own the casinos in all California but that’s a different story for another time.
