Storyboard Text

  • In Texas, native Americans lived in straw huts, lean-tos, teepees, and wickiups. The type of home each indian had varied on what tribe they were in.
  • The Native Americans hunted buffalo and farmed for food. When buffalo were hunted, the natives used each and every part of them for supplies. They used parts of the buffalo to make fuel, clothes, and other items that they needed.
  • Some Indians, like the Comanches, attacked towns of Tejanos and Anglo-Americans. They attacked so that they could steel settlers' supplies, food, and animals.
  • Shamans were appointed by tribes to be healers and religious leaders. The different Indian tribes were either matrilineal or patrilineal. If the tribe was matrilineal, a married couple would move in with the wife's family. If the tribe was patrilineal, the couple would move in with the husband's family.
  • Some indians came from Georgia or Alabama. Others were already living in Texas.
  • In Texas settlements, Anglo-Americans lived under Mexican rule. Anglos were people who immigrated to Texas from the US and Europe.  They were very independent and believed in a republican society. They disagreed with the mexican "dictatorship".
  • The anglos brought many things from home. They kept their european and american clothes (dresses with high collars and dress shirts and shoes). They also brought their muskets, pistols, and other weapons. They came with agricultural tools and even some luxurious items, such as wine and cigars.
