On Wednesday, September 15, the young team filled with many San Antonio newcomers, like draft picks Joshua Primo and Joe Wieskamp, took to the streets to become better acquainted with the city they’re representing. 

Spotted at Mission San Jose, the team appeared to enjoy learning about local history. The American Indians in Texas at the Spanish Colonial Missions (AIT-SCM) even took to twitter to share some photos of the team learning about the Indigenous history of the region.

Tre Jones, Drew Eubanks, Keldon Johnson, Derrick White, Josh Primo, Joe Wieskamp, Jock Landale and veteran Manu Ginobili reportedly gathered with the AIT-SCM on the Spurs tour of Mission San Jose. 

“When we see people walking around with imagery like this, what we are hoping for is education – that more and more people would be educated on the contributions that American Indians have made to San Antonio and the state of Texas, both historically and contemporarily,” said Ramon Vasquez, Executive Officer for the Tap Pīlam Coahuiltecan Nation to KENS-5.

The AIT-SCM, is a nonprofit organization established by the Tap Pilam Coahuiltecan Nation, which is comprised of descendants of the aboriginal people who populated South Texas and Northeast Mexico. Previously, former Spur Patty Mills, an outspoken advocate of indigenous representation, collaborated with the group to create an apparel collection.
