    In the simplest of terms, the Indians were hostile to the efforts of colonization by the incoming settlers and made it their business to repulse them in whatever form they could--usually in warfare.

    The Comanches controlled most of Texas from the east, and south, and north to what is now Oklahoma. The Apache raided Texas from the west (New Mexico). The Kiowa's Range was little further north (Iowa/kansas). Early on most tribes traded with the settlers untill it became evident that the whites wanted more, and more land. Union General McKenzie was quoted as saying" The Comanche were the finest light calvary." he ever saw.
