Program Details

How did early American Indians encounter their environment, other tribes, and the Spanish conquistadors in the vast landscape that would become Texas? A Museum educator will lead students as they search for evidence from artifacts and paintings to explore stories that reveal what impact these first encounters made upon these early Texans.

BONUS: The curator of the Becoming Texas exhibit, which explores the earliest parts of Texas history, will be joining for a special Q and A!

You'll be able to ask questions during the Q and A at the end of the program. No supplies needed, but if you want to add on some extension activities, see below.
