Comanche Wars

The Comanche Wars were forays by bands of Comanche native Americans along the Mexican and Texan frontier. In 1840, the Comanche launched an all out war against the Texans.

Some of their forays extended well down into Mexico. The various bands of the enemy Apache conducted similar forays in the vicinity of southern Arizona, New Mexico and Texas and northern Mexico. The last band of Comanches surrendered in 1875 though some warriors continued to fight in conflicts such as the Buffalo Hunters’ War from 1876 to 1877.

An interesting fact about the Three Sisters - Corn, Beans and Squash - is that they are interdependent of one another. Beans grow up the Corn stalks and add the nutrients to the soil and Squash is planted in between the corn to keep weeds out.
