Cementerio del Barrio de los Lipanes

In Presidio, a small cemetery has held the remains of Indigenous residents for centuries — but until recently, it was nearly abandoned. In 2021, the city and county made the historic decision to give the land to the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas. Since then, a coalition of local conservationists, descendants and architects has worked to transform the burial ground into a welcoming memorial.
