Comanche: A warrior race of people with a history longer than sand has passed through the hourglass of time. The nation's economy, like that of other Plains Indian tribes, was based primarily on the buffalo; they were hunters and warriors of the first degree. They warred with everyone. By the middle of the 18th century, they had taken up horse breeding and had herds numbering in the thousands. Their name, given to them by the Ute Indians from their word komantsi, which means enemy.
To the Anglo-American, Mexican, and Spaniards of the day, the word Comanche was enough to instill terror in the hearts of every person on the Texas frontier. They controlled a massive area of the United States known as Comancheria. As Spain, Mexico, and Texas moved into their lands, they raided with a vengeance, killing men, taking women and children captive, and stealing thousands of horses.
