Page history last edited by Hoth 6 years, 7 months ago



tradition- The Coahuiltecans had many traditions. The Coahuiltecans used to gather up in circles to dance and sing.  They wore pretty weird clothes when they were dancing.  They played the drums and played other musical instruments.  The Coahuiltecans had festivals and rituals to keep God happy. They believed that if they didn't God happy he would curse them.  They believed that spits controlled weather, wind and water. 


food and hunting - The Coahiltecans ate whatever they could find.  They ate rabbits,small rodents,reptiles,birds,deer and bugs.   But there main course was corn,beans and pecans.  The Coahiltecans were very great hunters.  The Coahiltecans liked to eat pinto beans and beans from the measquite tree.  They were very fast while catching their food.


clothing - The Coahiltecans cloths were made out of whatever they could find.  The wealthy men wore mountain lion head-covering.  The women wore dresses and skirts made of silk ( if they were rich) and Cotten skirts.  They tried to stay cool because they lived in a very hot place.  They used beads, feathers, deerskin and animal skin in their clothes.  Most Coahiltecans wore sandals.


shelter - The Coahiltecans lived in many different areas.  They lived in the north side of San Antonio.  They also lived in Mexico.  The Coahiltecans made their houses out of grass.


jobs/ money- Some native Indians traded for food and clothes. In the 17th and 19th century they traded with the English and French for food and clothes.  I'm sure the Coahuiltecans did the same thing. 


weapons and war - The Coahiltecans used lots of weapons such as crossbows, axs, bows and arrows, spears, guns, pick hammers, clubs, swords and Clovis, Folsom and plainview knifes.  They also used canons and shields.  They used the crossbows, guns, axs, pick hammers and the bows and arrows to hunt animals for food.  They were killed during the long wars against the Mexicans


education - The Coahuiltecans learned in many ways. The Native Indians got taught by their elders. So I think that the Coahuiltecans got taught by their elders too. They were taught how to hang, be warriors, to cook, how to start a fire and how to take care of their relatives. When the kids got older they have their parents.  There were told myths and legends by their elders.


language  -  Linguists believe that the Coahiltecans language was related to the Hokan language of California.  When the Coahiltecans were in San Antonio there language was called Pakawa.  The most known of there language was called Comecrudo or Cotoname.


entertainment- The Coahuiltecans had a hunting game that the kids enjoyed. They had bands playing music and had over 100 people watching. They had 24 people playing in the band.
