Exhibit On View from March 22 through July 7, 2024

Tejanos of Revolutionary Texas tells the story of Juan Seguin, Jose Antonio Navarro and other Texans of Mexican descent during Texas’ most volatile era. This interactive exhibit explores why these families came to Texas and how the frontier experience shaped Tejano involvement in the Mexican Wars of Independence and the Texas Revolution.

The exhibit concludes by examining how Tejanos were treated after independence and American statehood, and how Tejano communities survived and thrived in the face of adversity and racism.
