Website to be

October 3, 2012

For my final project, I am going to do a website on the Vaquero, the first Cowboy.  This site will be educational in defining the influences and skills of the vaquero in California’s history and how those traits transformed into the American cowboy we know today.  The audience for this could be school aged children to those interested in California and Western history.  I will give prominent attention to Arnold Rojas, the “Last Vaquero” and his numerous contributions to preserving this lost way of life.

The Spanish or Mexican influence on the American West has been ignored or down played especially when dealing with the imagery of the cowboy.  With this website I hope to expose the roots of this American icon and the Spanish traditions it built itself on.
