Over a thousand Tejanos sacrificed their lives for liberty and freedom, yet to this day these first sons and daughters of the State of Texas remain unknown and unrecognized for their ultimate sacrifice. “Tejano Roots,” brings a historic and a renewed sense of pride to our Hispanic community with a story that belongs to them, their families, their history and their hearts.
