South Texas history is the least reported history in the state. Yet, each county in South Texas has a rich South Texas history. Most are similar in surprising ways.
The name Coahuiltecans,
Indians who lived throughout the area , relates more to a broad title for people with a language connection than a tribal name. Their name refers to various groups of prehistoric and
early historic hunter-gatherer bands of Indians. These people and their way of life were first historically preserved by Cabeza de Vaca after his shipwreck. We are quite thankful to de Vaca for his gifted record of these early times in South Texas history with his
account, The Relación. We highly recommend this short book which tells of his travels and his servitude as a slave during that time.
Most of the Coahuiltecans entered into the Spanish culture through living and working in Spanish missions. Today, there is a resurgence of the groups
seeking identity among North American Native Tribes.
De Vaca's synopsis is just one of the many we will share on this contact page. Let us know what you would like to see here.
