Los Adaes

Los Adaes


Perched on the edge of the vast Spanish empire in North America, Los Adaes served as both a mission and a presidio. The site's authors readily engage students in the story of a time when the Spanish, the French and the Caddo Indians lived together in a new land. There are great visuals, including artifacts and drawings of frontier life.
