Title: A multicultural ethnohistory of Fort Davis, Texas
Author: Marshall-Gray, Paula J
Abstract: Fort Davis , Texas was selected by the National Park Service in 1961 as a National Historic Site . This fort was part of the western line of forts built by the United States during the last half of the nineteenth century to control indigenous populations . Highly diverse cultures have inhabited Trans -Pecos Texas for thousands of years making the area truly multicultural in nature . Examination of the Prehistoric cultures , the Apache culture , the Hispanic culture , the Military culture , and the Park Service culture , that have all occupied the Fort Davis Region , allows for a well -rounded interpretation of the site . Each of these groups brought its own set of traditions and belief systems into the area which are evidenced in cultural survivals as they exist in Fort Davis today . The aim of this study is to examine the prehistoric to historic cultures in order to gain a better understanding of how they molded the ethno -historical development of the area .
