        Tejanos | Genealogy Roadshow

        This clip from Genealogy Roadshow gives a brief overview of Tejanos, or Texans of Mexican heritage, and their role in the formation of the state of Texas. Originally under the rule of the Spanish and then the Mexican government, Tejanos sought independence to become their own sovereign state. Tejanos spearheaded the Texas Revolution, which eventually resulted in Texas’ annexation into the United States—and reaffirmed Tejanos’ importance to the Texan historical narrative.
