A Tejano is a descendant of the Spanish and Mexican families that first inhabited the Texas frontier from the late 1600s through the late 1800s. Tejanos are considered the first families of Texas; they lived in this area nearly 150 years prior to the Texas Revolution and created the areas first towns, governments, missions, ranches and roads.

People may remember, Selena Quintanilla !!!
She was a Tejana for sure !!!!

    omg… I saw her clios before but didn’t know the sad story…xx

  • The Tejano community (mostly Catholics, which I now longer claim to be)….. almost worship her like a Patron Saint.
    People ask her to send messages to God above to help their families in crises.
    She is something like a saint to the Tejano community.
    After reading her story in Texas Monthly (this year was 15 years since her murder), I realized how amazing she truely was.
    She didn’t even know the Spanish language when she was a young girl……. her dad, and her fans, taught her everything she needed to know.
    Her story is one of hope, love, and amazing wonder…
    I love her….
    I might visit her hometown of Corpus Christi and leave some flowers, some day at her memorial. Corpus Christi, Texas, was her hometown. xxx

    My wife was in love with here music, her students would often preform shows and lip singing and it brought my wife a lot of attention because Selena was a great role model for our children down here in Harlingen. Yes, she came here when she was only beginning, and the child that played here at an early age is only a couple of miles from us. That young lady who played her also was a student in our school, but it was a distraction and they pulled her out. Thank you for the reminders, my wife played her videos over and over during her sick times and and I imagine she saw the tapes at least a hundred times. I am sure she is in heaven thanking you like I am for letting the world know about Selena. I was feelings the blues and away from red bubble for that reason and here I am with wonderful memories of my wife and Selena’s music, thank you for the memories, you rock.

  • I am glad that it brought something special to you, Oscar :))
    Selena touched so many people.
    She, like your wife, will never be forgoten :))
    I hope you feel better soon xx
