The land at Katy silos is historically native land. The Karankawa were a nomadic people, moving between the area of Galveston, the Gulf coast to the inland area of Katy. This was rich hunting ground for Native Americans. It is interesting to note that there is very little information on the people who were before them. Records for this area are thin. One could make a guess that they would be Mayans and Aztecs.
Migration is a key part of this areas history, different cultures have so much to offer one another. It continually amazes me that migrants are vilified here, especially Texas where the population is so diverse.
