Tigua Indians

by; Franco Alcantara-Gonzalez

WHERE THEY LIVE, THEN AND NOW

Back then the Tigua were in this city called Ysleta .They lived happily in the city untill the spanish came ,the villagers told them to leave but the spanish said no! The spanish started burning stuff and took some 300 prisoners to the west of texas also now known as el paso

the spanish built cities for them and named them after the older cities ,one of them Ysleta,But the spanish put del sur after that so it was know called ysleta del sur ,del sur means of south

DEAD OR ALIVE?

The BIA 'bureau of indian affairs' said that tigua were non indians and will not have indian rights. The city of el paso investigated and the investegators said that the tigua culture is no more and there fore they were not indians ,But the tigua said they were Indians and within a few years the tigua were regonized and were given indian rights
