Tejano Monument Unveiling
Thu, March 29, 2012 • 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM • State Capitol, Austin, Texas
In 2001, State Representative Ismail “Kino” Flores (D) sponsored a House Resolution (HCR-38) to establish a monument commemorating the early Spanish and Mexican pioneers of Texas… the Tejano Monument. The measure was sponsored in the Texas Senate by Mario Gallegos (D) and signed by Governor Rick Perry (R) on June 15, 2001.
The mission of the Tejano Monument is to emplace a monument on the Texas Capitol grounds to establish an enduring legacy that acknowledges and pays tribute to the contributions by Tejanos as permanent testimony of the Spanish-Mexican heritage that has influenced and is inherent in present-day Texas culture.
Please join us for the unveiling of the Tejano Monument at the State Capitol in Austin, Texas on March 29, 2012 at 10:00 am.
