Learn about the first European to set foot in what is now known as Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.

Estevan, a Moor and Spanish slave is given credit for being the first European to set foot the modern US. How he accomplished that feat is an all most unbelievable tale, filled with danger, adventure, and a date with fate. Co-sponsored by the New Mexico Humanities Council & the Department of Cultural Affairs, this program is made possible by the generous support of The Amigos de Cerrillos Hills State Park.
