Tejanos — Hispanics who were born in what would later become Texas — were an important part in the fight for Texas independence. Jose Antonio Navarro and Lorenzo de Zavala were part of the signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2,1836. ln 1836, about 4,000 Tejanos lived north of the Nueces River. Many Tejanos felt the Mexican government had become too centralist and authoritarian.
