In this module we read the article from Dr. Jesus F. De La Teja, “Discovering the Tejano Community in ‘Early’ Texas.” This is Chapter 5 in En Aquel Entonces. We will analyze the thesis of his essay, ” The evidence demonstrates that despite suspicions, and sometimes overt racism and antipathy, there existed between Texans and Tejanos much common ground” (De La Teja 39).
I recommend reading the article twice. Please answer these questions:
What did the Texans/ Tejanos eat and do for fun?
How did they share their suffering?
How does Dr. De La Teja support his conclusion? Explain.
Please do a compare and contrast type paper. What things were similar between the two cultures? What was different?
