Official blog of TheOteros.com where Arizona history is celebrated and made.

By Diana DeLugan

WELCOME
Bienvenidos to the new Otero Family History Blog where we will discuss all things related to the Otero Family of Tubac. If you have a question about Otero Family History, let me know. I'll be glad to research your question and publish the answer here so that everyone interested in this subject can benefit from your question. 

Since research began in 2009, it became quickly apparent that inconsistencies and errors existed in previously published media regarding Otero family history. When news has been reported about a subject for centuries, it is not uncommon for facts to be embellished or reported incorrectly due to lack of available information or misconstrued facts due to lost or destroyed documentation caused by the passage of time. This post is the first of what will be an ongoing effort to accurately report the history of the Oteros of Tubac, Arizona and learn more about southern Arizona's pioneer past. All mediums including print and video will be reviewed.  The purpose of this inquiry is not to criticize. Rather, it is to help educate and set the record straight so that anyone interested in Otero Family History and Southern Arizona History can become more informed about Arizona's pioneer past. 
WHY DOES THIS MATTER
The Otero family is proud of Don Torivio de Otero's legacy as Arizona's first European private owner of land, first private landowner to build an irrigation system and the first documented lay teacher during Hispanic Arizona periods. 

Like other Hispanic Arizona families, the Otero family survived drought and physical and legal attacks against its' land. Struggles endured by Hispanics in the American southwest are often forgotten, or voices muted as being inconsistent with modern perspectives related to Arizona history. The Otero family is an integral part of Arizona's Hispanic past. It is one of many important Hispanic families that helped make Arizona what it is today. A cursory look at Arizona's architecture, art, and street names of any Arizona city or town reflect remnants of our Spanish and Mexican past. The Otero Family History Blog celebrates our collective Arizona pioneer past.


History has been kind to the Otero Family of Tubac. Over the centuries, many notable Otero descendants have been memorialized in writing like Don Torivio de Otero, Atanacio Otero, Sabino Otero, Teofilo Otero, and Sister Clara (Gabriella) Otero. However, there is much more history to be discussed and celebrated.


HOW CAN YOU HELP
Truth is our destination. If you have any information to help clarify a historical reference, person, or event related to southern Arizona History or Otero Family History, please contact us. Thank you in advance for your interest in Otero Family History. Remember, your comments are encouraged and always welcomed.

I don't know why there is a need for some to keep trying to change or erase history. If they have done something wrong, the least they can do is admit it. It is sad that they keep writing a different story for some places they try to invade. They regard themselves as heroes. They are criminals. I wish justice is served to every family that suffered. It is great that you set up this website to correct things.

Have you ever realized that unless we feel pushed beyond our limits by a trouble, then we feel motivated to paying attention to some aid that can appear in front of us? Have you ever realized that a simple phrase someone left for any person in need, can help us to fix our troubles? What kind of magic lies behind those simple sayings called quotes?

I don't understand why there's a need for a while to maintain attempting to change or erase heritage. If they've done something amiss, the very least they are able to do is admit it. It is miserable they keep writing another story for a number of spots they make an effort to invade. They respect themselves as heroes. They're offenders. I need justice is served to each and every family that suffered. It's amazing that you place this up site to repair matters.
