Description

El Vaquero, America’s First Cowboy presents cowboy culture's origins and development in the American West. Tracing cowboy culture’s roots from the open plains of Spain to the establishment of ranching culture in the New World, the show describes the role of the Spanish/Mexican vaquero in the establishment of traditional cowboy and ranching practices in the American West, placing the historical and fictional lore in the historical context of the vaquero.

The show includes stories about the tools of the working vaquero and demonstrations of bullwhip cracking and rope tricks. A special feature of the show is the historically accurate costume representing the Spanish Colonial Vaquero of the 1700s.
