Before it was Indianola, Indian Point marked the middle of the Karankawa's coastal territory and the entrance to Matagorda and Lavaca Bays at Pass Cavallo. First, Spanish explorers entered the settlement region here, beginning peacefully with Pineda in 1519 and Cabeza de Vaca in 1528.
In the late 1600's, however, La Salle and the French began conflicts with the Indians that escalated in the 1700's, first in resistance to Spanish missions and later in open conflicts with the pirate Lafitte in 1819, Stephen F. Austin in 1824, and settlers in the 1840's. Pushed further south, the last of the band were killed in 1858 by Cortina's Mexican troops, ending the power of their legendary stature and ferocity. This Texas rose' wine honors the Gulf Coast's lost tribe.
