The Mission Indians were neither a tribe nor a federation; they were dozens of small tribes of the Southern California region, lumped together by confused or indifferent Europeans. Each tribe tended to have two names: their original name, and the name of the nearest Spanish mission (hence the generic "Mission Indians"). This has only created more confusion, however, as sometimes two or more tribes were served by the same mission.
