Candelaria Family Genealogy Forum
Though there are many Candelarias who claim a hispanic or spanish origin, I have innumerable references to Native Americans named Candelaria as well. Many are Apache, Navajo, Mission Indian, Shoshone, and even one Sioux, a Bernard Candelaria, who attended the notorious Carlisle Indian School.
I am preparing a paper on this and would appreciate any and all assistance/contributions etc., that would contribute to developing this fascinating story!
