Landscape and Climate
"Fig People," who relied heavily
on tunas, lived primarily on the
South Texas Plains, an area
characterized here as cactus-rich,
and very poor in fish resources.
The “Roots People” lived inland and
lived off of the outer edge of the
Post Oak Savanna area, which can be said to be
root-rich, deer-rich, and fish-moderate,
with full access to prickly-pear grounds
Many Indians lived on the Texas plains, and
they were given names on what they lived off of.
Much of the area is dry and covered with
grasses and thorny brush such as mesquite
and prickly pear cacti.
There are some lakes dotting the region,
as well as short-lived "Resacas."
A Resaca is a former channel
of the Rio Grande River
that has been cut off.
Also a wooded swamp
named the Big Thicket.
Avg. rainfall=40"-52"per year
Also, many outsiders where attracted to this rich farm land.
Men of wealth from the Piney Woods region
of the state who were classified as
"planters" may have gained their wealth
not by "planting"but by raising livestock
on the open range system.

"Then God said, 'Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.'"
The indians on Texas connected with the horse, and used it in raids and hunts.
