Texas Water Stories” [Team: Heather Houser (project lead – English), Paul Adams (Geography), C.J. Alvarez (Mexican American & Latina/o Studies), Tia Madkins (Education), and Fikile Nxumalo (Univ of Toronto)]


Over the past two years, Texas Water Stories has assessed wide-ranging narratives about one of the most valuable resources in Texas: water. Hear historical narratives about the Rio Grande along the US-Mexico border, discover Coahuiltecan ceremonies honoring the natural springs of Central Texas and learn about farmers struggling with the declining Ogallala aquifer and their subsequent shift to dry-land farming on the Southern High Plains.
