Event Details

Historian, genealogist, and lecturer John P. Schmal will discuss the Native groups that occupied both sides of the U.S. – Mexico border and surrounding regions during the last three centuries. While some of these tribes are well-known to us today (i.e., the Yaquis, Tohono O’odham, Kumeyaay, Cocopah), tribal groups that have disappeared as distinguishable cultural entities (i.e., Conchos, Jocome, Coahuiltecans) will also be discussed. Schmal will provide the history of those tribes and explore the current status of the tribal communities that still exist today.
