9th Annual Tejano Vigil in The AlamoShrine
The Annual Tejano Vigil at The Alamo Shrine is conducted during Tejano Heritage Month inSeptember to continue educating students and the general public about the true legacies and livesof Tejanos in Texas History. More specifically, this solemn event focuses on the role Tejanos played in the revolution for Texas independence. This occasion is a long overdue honor given toTejano Heroes like: Esparza, Losoya, Espalier, Rodriguez and others who fought in militaryservice for the Lone Star State.Additionally, it helps to focus on the role Tejano Patriots played in the development of the TexasRepublic and the role Tejano Women played in the support of their husbands and sons in thefield of battle. For over one hundred and fifty years prior to the Battle of the Alamo, Tejanos had
fought and died for a free and independent Texas.This event signals the ultimate price Tejanos have always given to their native Texas and the role
they have played in Texas military history. Although, the “Battle of The Alamo,” is the
quintessential military event in Texas history, Hispanic men and women have performed withgallantry and valor prior to and since that battle.Therefore, we are very proud to help provide the leadership for this very special event that helpsto elevate and celebrate Tejano heritage and hi
story. It was once said, “Texas history can never  be complete without the story of the Tejano being told!”
 This year, our 9th Annual Tejano Vigil will be held at The Alamo Shrine at 7:00 pm onSeptember 14th. Everyone is invited to join in celebrating the legacy of brave Tejanos andTejanas. A Military Leader will be the featured speaker at this solemn ceremony held to identify,elevate and celebrate Tejano and Tejana patriots and heroes involved in the Revolution of 1835
1836. Other speakers will also eulogize the roles and contributions of Tejanas and TejanoPoliticians. For more info or to RSVP, contact us at (210) 673-3584.
