Quote from: "Undertaker"Homerboy2u2, He was an early spanish explorer in the area. Right you are,mr. Undertaker....But for our general public, Alvar Nu?ez Cabeza de Vaca, was the first explorer who traverse the whole area , registering all records of history in that area , for the first time. Any records logged from the spaniars, and on is due to him. He was the one who contacted the natives, made the maps of the area and eventually showed the world of this beautiful area called Big bend-El Carmen. That is why , he is so important for us hardcore?s.FYI
Acoma, is still partially occupied, although I think it's mostly for the tourists.
Yeah; from what I remember there were some hard feelings between tribal members about letting the tour groups up there;
I saw a couple of German tourists poking around in the cemetery; they kept sneaking away from their tour group. Not sure what they were up to; they got kicked out after someone noticed them behind the church. I think they searched them pretty thoroughly before they let them go.
