Tigua Artifacts Return
September 13, 2013

Ancient artifacts that left the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo more than 110 years ago were unpacked and prepared for viewing as part of an upcoming yearlong exhibition at the El Paso Museum of History.

Tigua leaders officially welcomed the artifacts in a closed ceremony. The artifacts include two drums, a war shield, a pair of leather moccasins and guajes.

"These artifacts are very important to our Pueblo in our ceremonies," said Javier Loera, Tigua War Captain. "To us, it's a homecoming."

Tribal Council extends a warm invitation to the grand opening reception on Friday, September 13, 2013, from 5-7pm at the El Paso Museum of History.

RSVP Requested: (915) 859-8053.
