Recent Archaeological Investigations at Mission San Juan Capistrano, Texas: Indigenous Identity in Spanish Colonial and Modern Times.

Author(s): Susan R Snow; Alexis Artuz; Laura Burghardt

Year: 2017

Summary

This paper will discuss the results of the archaeological investigations that were conducted as part of the establishment of a platted reburial area at Mission San Juan. The discovery of human remains during the stabilization and restoration of the Mission San Juan church led to a creative partnership between the Archdiocese of San Antonio and the National Park Service to provide a respectful reburial area that complied with the Texas Health and Safety Code, and did not compromise the integrity of archaeological remains within the compound at Mission San Juan. The paper will look at both the information on indigenous lifeways identified archaeologically but also look at the modern management of these resources and the resurgence of indigenous identity.
