COMMEMORATING THE NARVÁEZ EXPEDITION
Large-scale monument commissioned by History Council and proposed for downtown waterfront, featuring four key individuals: Pánfilo de Narváez – leader of the expedition; Cabeza de Vaca – first to write a book about what is now the United States of America; Estevanico – first black explorer of North America and “discoverer” of Arizona and New Mexico; Ucita – Chief of the Tocobaga.
Honoring the Tocobaga Indian Tribe
Proposed monument for the Anderson/Narváez (Jungle Prada) archaeological site (monument designed by sculptor Mark Aeling; rendering by artist, Carrie Jadus, both of St. Petersburg, FL).
The name “Tocobaga” is often applied to all of the native peoples of the immediate Florida Suncoast area during the first Spanish colonial period (1513-1763).
