OnStage @ APL presents Tejano Experience and Genealogy

Thursday, September 21, 2023

Dr. Robert Saldana speaks about his book, "Tejano Experience."

Earning acclaim from the prestigious Next Generation Indie Book Awards, Tejano Experience is a case study in Spanish-American and Mexican American genealogy. This book resulted from the author’s efforts to find more information about himself, his family, and his fellow Tejanos.  

A subculture within the Hispanic and Latino communities, Tejanos possess many unique cultural and family traditions that set them apart. Thus, tracing ancestries is a daunting task for them. Dr. Saldaña will share how he overcame obstacles while researching his ancestry. As a result of his efforts, he captured family stories which are often overlooked. In addition, he stresses the importance of putting them into print.

A Texas resident, Dr. Saldaña holds an Associate of Science Degree in Nursing and a Doctoral Degree of Optometry.

Can’t be there in person? The program will be streamed live on ACTV. For online, cable channel, and streaming app options, view the Watch ACTV  page or use the live streaming link provided in the sidebar.
