Tigua Indian Reservation: Ysleta del Sur Pueblo


category : Indian Reservations
Oldest community in present boundaries of Texas, now part of the city of El Paso, was established in 1681 by refugees from a bloody uprising that expelled Spanish and Christian Indians from present New Mexico. Spanish missionaries and loyal Tigua Indians settled here at El Paso del Norte and built Ysleta Mission. The mission church is still the religious focal point of the Tigua Indian community.

The Ysleta del Sur Pueblo Cultural Center is owned and operated by the Tigua Indians. It features a museum, gift shop, Indian social dancing, the Cacique Cafe, and delicious, fresh Indian bread.
