Some major industries include defense, oil drilling, collecting natural gas, manufacturing, farming, ranching, railroad services, and entertainment. There are some Native American groups that live in areas with rolling plains, praries, and some woodland areas such as the Lipan Apaches and the Comanche tribes. A majority of the population is made of Hispanics and Caucasians.
