About the Artist: The Tribe's Shield was designed and entirely painted by artist and Tribe member Juan Villareal from Alice, Texas. Juan was part of a committee who conceptualized the basics of what was to be incorporated into the shield design. He then worked on and presented the current shield design to the committe which was accepted. Juan Villareal also painted the Paleo Texas mural in the first Tribal Office in Corpus Christi, Texas. When space permits, this mural will be reassembled in the new Tribe Office in McAllen, Texas.
