Heritage intact for Cinco de Mayo

Denton County Hispanics have a rich heritage that predominately originates from the area of Melchor Muzquiz, a beautiful and traditional mining city located 130 km north of Monclova in the State of Coahuila, Mexico; is surrounded by spectacular mountain landscapes.

The Kikapu Indians are important in the history of Muzquiz. They settled in Coahuila in 1850 as border guardians in exchange for the land where they now live near Muzquiz, in a place known as “Nacimiento”. They make leather items, beadwork, and laminated metal products.
