Ysleta del Sur Pueblo (YDSP) is one of three federally-recognized Native American tribes, and the only Pueblo, in the State of Texas. The current YDSP population is approximately 4,226 members nationwide. Thirteen miles from downtown El Paso, Ysleta, Texas has been home to the Tigua people for over 300 years.
Each year, YDSP publishes a year-end report outlining the various improvements and challenges the tribe experiences over the course of the year.
YDSP is the oldest community in the State of Texas as well as the oldest running government since its establishment in 1682. The Pueblo’s culture continues to flourish as each generation proudly promulgates its heritage.
The Pueblo is an active partner in the greater El Paso region. Its government and business contributions support the Pueblo as well as the greater El Paso economy. The Pueblo owns and operates a tribal government and diverse enterprises that provide meaningful employment and benefits for both tribal members and regional citizens. The Pueblo is proud to be an employer of choice in the region with a local workforce nearing 1,200 across all tribal entities—30% of these positions are filled by YDSP members. Furthermore, gainful employment opportunities are critical to the Pueblo achieving economic self-sufficiency while improving its overall quality of life.Ysleta del Sur Pueblo has a long history of traditional crafts including pottery. This annual focused on the artistry usually applied to that pottery to bring the book to life.
Anne M. Giangiulio Design created a simply beautiful account of the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo's yearly operations by commissioning imagery usually reserved for the painting of Tigua pottery and applying it instead to the purpose of embellishing this annual report.
