The art expressions are taken from the compilation of words and phrases in Lisa Kay Adam’s book “XUAI”. The Coahuiltecan and Karankawa were native to the Rio Grande Valley prior to the Spanish Land Grants. With Spanish missions dominating the area, many of the natives were converted to Christianity. Through those missions, words were translated from native languages to Spanish. Ms. Adam has researched and documented some 100 words and phrases from this “lost” language. She will present information about this beautiful language on Saturday, October 9, 20231 at 2:00 p.m.
