Indigenous Peoples’ Day, October 10 2022

This is a bit belated, but October 10 was Indigenous People’s Day. Group leaders would like to give acknowledgement to the many native peoples that lived (and some who still live) in what is now called the greater Austin area. You can learn about one such tribe, the Lipan Apache, at their website

Other native peoples with historical claim to land in the Austin area include the Jumanos, Coahuiltecan, Comanche, Tonkawa, and Sana.

If you live in Waco, Dallas-Fort Worth, Llano, Fredericksburg, etc, you are on Kickapoo land and can learn about the Kickapoo tribe here:
