A Good Place to Start

When is a tribe not really a tribe?? Not all the Texas Indians lived in tribes. What is material culture and non material culture? What is culture? Know what a hunter-gatherer is? If you cannot answer these questions you better READ THIS FIRST. and learn some basics before you read about the Indian cultures.  Trust me and read it first.  You really need some of the very basic tools of anthropology to properly understand Indian cultures -- so here they are.

The study of cultures, like Texas Indians cultures, is called anthropology. People who do not know any anthropology should READ THIS FIRST  and learn the basic information they need. Adults might want to try the introduction for adults and teachers first.

Anthropology rules !!!!!!!!!
