While Columbus Day traditionally honors the significance of Europeans “discovering” the Americas, Indigenous Peoples Day honors the heritage and contributions of indigenous/Native Americans who inhabited these lands long before the arrival of Europeans. The Tehuan Band of Mission Indians will provide a blessing, dance/drumming circle and craft/art exhibit.

The Tehuan Band of Mission Indians are the direct descendants of the San Jose Mission Indians and aim to share their culture and lived experiences through genealogy, dance, education, music, art, and community building. They strive to be an integral part of the history of San Antonio as well as a vital part of its future.
