Our main mission is to bring awareness and education about Tejano pioneers from the early 1600s, 1700s and 1800s. By definition, Tejanos are the descendants of the first Spanish, Mexican and indigenous families of the Texas frontier. Tejanos had significant impact on Texas ranching, livestock, architecture, religion and government. Yet, little has been written, published and or programmed through our state institutions and schools.
Therefore, Texas Tejano’s main goal is to produce publications, documentaries, plays, historical re-enactments, websites and exhibits that educate and celebrate the Tejano experience. Our second most important goal is to create a Tejano history “System of Education” through the use of all our materials and resources that can be utilized by libraries, schools and institutions of higher learning. Further, we have been very mindful of all the state requirements for testing in completing our materials.
Here is a list of all the current materials we offer for the classroom:
