Great historical sit about a tribe of Indians that wereLittle known except locally
Apr 2019
Not only do they perform historical dances, but the site itself also reeks of history! Must try the Gorditas there as they are outstanding. We used almost a day just sightseeing and going through historical data and of course eating.

One of my favorite places

A wonderful place to see and learn about the culture of the Tigua Nation. Make sure to check the schedule before going to be there when important events take place.

Small, but good opportunity to learn about some of Texas's native people

We stopped by the Tigua Indian Cultural Center during an afternoon of exploring the nearby missions. The Cultural Center has a small museum, but is more of a cultural center (that hosts events). They also have a small gift shop where you can purchase Tigua artifacts. Worth visiting if you're in the area nd want to learn more about the oldest federally recognized tribe in Texas.

Tiny and neat

Without the dancing Tigua statue you would probably miss it the first time. The museum is small but the location is nice. Shady and cool, you might sit down on a bench and taste some freshly baked corn bread....

Seemingly just another boring historical site, but this one has added benefits.

The church there in the Tigua section of El Paso down by Ysleta High School is one of the oldest places in the entire United States. If you decide to go down there, be sure to visit the place that is in the same complex that has free concerts with name bands, and it's also a VFW post (one of five in El Paso).

Great Native American Culture Experience

Try to visit on on Saturday. They have young people dancing in traditional regalia and bread baking in outdoor bee hive ovens. There is also a very nice museum and some Native owned shops to visit.

Whta a cool place

Went here recently after a many year hiatus. Always a cool, fascinating and interesting place. The home made bread is out of this world. The staff are great and friendly. Go there and watch a Native American tribal dance. It is spectacular. The people are warm and friendly.

A lovely place to visit along the El Paso Mission Trail. The native dance performance was wonderful, they did several dances and invited the crowd up to dance the final dance with them. Make sure to call and check the times for the performances, as they vary.

Went for a seminar.
May 2016 • Family
The Tigua people really make you feel welcome. I was only a guest at the seminar, so I can't speak to price but everything from child care to food can be taken care of here. The facility is very nice and new. I took the time to drive around the ring road and there are a lot of facilities.

A must stop to try their fantastic Bread that they make and you must schedule a beautiful outing to see their fantastic dancers. It is breath taking to sit their and participate in this experience. You need to stop by when on your way through the Mission Trails. It is a must see!!!
