This is the first time in over 25 years that Otero family descendants from all branches of the family tree will gather in Tucson to celebrate their rich heritage and honor their patriarch Don Torivio de Otero and his accomplishments. Anyone interested in Hispanic Pioneer history will find the presentations informative.
