Apache warriors, circa 1880.

New research shows that before Juan Maria Ponce de Leon was ranching on land that became El Paso, a large reservation of up to 1,000 Apaches existed in the area that is now Duranguito. That’s the topic of a symposium featuring historians and archaeologists to be held next week at UTEP.   

We’ll get a preview of the symposium on the Oct. 12 broadcast of “The El Paso History Radio Show” hosted by Jackson Polk and Melissa Sargent. Max Grossman, the symposium’s organizer and a UTEP professor, will explain how the research changes what we know about early El Paso history, and the role played by the Spanish.

The only live radio program about El Paso history airs from 10 a.m.-noon Saturday on News Radio 690 KTSM. For information, visit EPHistory.com.
