The Indian Texans.
Texas Univ., San Antonio. Inst. of Texan Cultures.
According to the booklet, the first Texans were of Asiatic origin, arriving in Texas during the last Ice Age. Also as reported, remains of the first identifiable Texan were found near Midland in 1953, and the evidence indicated that "Midland Minnie" lived about 12,000 years ago. This pamphlet--one of a series on Texan cultures--depicts narratively and pictorially 12,000 years of contributions of the Texas Indians to the culture and history of the state. Not only are the living habits of different tribes discussed but also some of the battles with the white man, such as the Parker's Fort Massacre, the Council House Fight in San Antonio, the Linnville Raid, the battle at Adobe Walls, the Salt Creek Massacre, and the battle of Palo Duro Canyon. Among the tribes discussed are the Comanche, Kiowa, Tigua, Tejas, Apache, Wichita, and Cherokee Indians. (JB)
