Coahuiltecan Creation Story

Coahuiltecan Creation Story

Spring Lake and the San Marcos Springs are considered by many to be one of the oldest persistently inhabited sites by humans in North America. Known as the “Sacred Springs,” the Coahuiltecan People consider it to be the location of their creation story. Watch along to learn about the Coahuiltecan creation story as told by Maria Garza from the Indigenous Cultures Institute.

The Meadow Center's outdoor learning programs engage people of all ages, teaching them about Spring Lake and the importance of water to all living things. We inspire visitors to become stewards of our natural resources through environmental education programs.
