Subsisting on local game and vegetation, the Hahamongna lived in villages scattered along the Arroyo Seco and the canyons from the mountains down to the South Pasadena area. With the arrival of the Spaniards and the establishment of the San Gabriel Mission on September 8, 1771, most of the Native Americans were converted to Christianity and provided labor for the mission.
