[Marker Front - English Translation]:
The present site of the Ysleta Neighborhood Health Clinic was part of the earliest Native American settlement associated with a Spanish Mission in the State of Texas, circa 1680 - 1750 A.D.

In 1989-1980, archaeologists conducted excavation and historic documentation prior to construction of the Ysleta Neighborhood Health Clinic. Research indicated that the original inhabitants of Ysleta migrated from Isleta Pueblo near Albuquerque to the Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo in the early 1680's as a result of the Pueblo Revolt against the Spaniards in 1680.

The excavations revealed many insights on the lifeways, architecture and subsistence of the Native American and Spanish settlers of the Post-Revolt Pueblo Period. For instance, the cactus and mesquite which surround this monument are examples of the type of food gathered by the Native American peoples to survive in our harsh desert climate. Remnants were found of a jacal structure, or a small one room house made of willow or cottonwood branches, lashed between posts and plastered with mud. These indications of how our ancestors lived show us the hardy nature of those who came to call Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo home, and provide to us knowledge that future generations can use.

Plaza de Ysleta
El local presente de la Clinica de Salubridad en Ysleta fue parte del primer poblado Indigeno asociado con una Mision Espa?ola en el Estado de Texas, circa 1680 - 1750 A.D.

En 1989 - 1990, previo a la construccion de la Clinica de Salubridad en Ysleta, se condujeron investigaciones arqueologicas e historicas de ese local y de la region. La investigacion arqueologica indica que los habitantes originales de Ysleta emigraron del Pueblo de Isleta cerca de Albuquerque, Nuevo Mexico, al Pueblo de Ysleta del Sur debido a la Rebelion de los Pueblos contra los Espa?oles en 1680.

Las investigaciones revelaron muchas cosas a cerca de los estilos de vida, arquitectura y subsistencia de los colonos Indigenas y Espa?oles del Periodo Pos - Rebelion de los Pueblos. Por ejemplo, el cactus y el mesquite que estan alrededor de este monumento son ejemplos del tipo de alimentos que juntaban los Indigenas para sobrevivir en el duro clima del desierto. Fueron encontrados los restos de la estructura de un jacal, o una casa peque?a de un solo cuarto, las cuales eran construidas con ramas de alamo y ramas de sauce entrelazadas en los postes y cubiertas con barro. Estas indicaciones de como vivieron nuestros antepasados nos muestra la naturaleza fuerte y robusta de esos que vinieron a llamar el Pueblo de Ysleta del Sur su hogar, y nos proveen conocimientos que nuestras furtuas generaciones podran usar.
