Transcript of Native Tribes
Patarabueyes of La Junta
When the spanish first entered the Trans-Pecos they encountered settled people living in pueblos ( villages) in the vicinity of presidio, Texas who were part-time farmers. They called those people the Patarabueyes, this is actually three spanish words combined into one Partarabuyes (to kick), A (to or at), Bueyes (oxen). Around 1580, Spanish soldiers bestowed this name to the people who lived in the the intermontain basin that today we call the Presidio Bolson. Here in this valley, the Conchos River, flowing north out of Mexico, confluences with the Rio Grande at what came to be known as La J unta de los Rios. The name patarabueyes is significant in several ways. First, it is an example of how Spanish colonization served to change or muddle a pre-existing network of relationships among the native people of northern Mexico and Texas. The Spanish soldiers knew full well that the people of this valley had other names for themselves, names that had a history and meaning to them and there neighbors.

freely throughout the Southwest including Texas,
Arizona, Chihuahua Mexico and Sonora Mexico. Alpache warriors hunted buffalo , deer , and antelope.Most of the women would spent time gathering seeds to eat or plant.
