Presentation on theme: "Coahuiltecan Indians South Texas Plains By Melissa D., Erin J., and Stephanie B. “Certain materials are included under the fair use exemption of the U.S."— Presentation transcript:
Geography & Culture These Indians are nomadic hunters. This means that they are constantly moving and looking/hunting for food. They spoke many different languages because they weren’t one tribe, but many grouped together. When water was available, they’d catch fish and let them rot and gain maggots, then eat the fish AND the maggots!
What Happened... The Coahuiltecans have left many ancestors, but none of them live like their fathers. When the Spaniards started missionaries, the steady source of water and food appealed to the Coahuiltecans. When they joined the missionaries, they ended up marrying the Spanish. They started to live more like the Spaniards, instead of their ancestors.
