Section 6 - Analaysis on effect of Comanche in Texas
The Comanche were in Texas when it was still owned by Spain and when it was owned by Mexico. The Comanche being in Texas was one reason people from Mexico didn't want to live in Texas. When the empresario system was in place all of the empresarios tried to get land as far away from the Comanche and were given cannons from Mexico to use on the Comanche (even though they actually used on Mexico). When Texas was a republic the Comanche were comfortable under Sam Houston's presidency but when Lamar was in office Lamar did everything he could to get the Native Americans out of Texas. The Comanche often stole horses from the Texans. Today a population of about 10,000 Comanche live in Oklahoma. The Comanche have come a long way since the 1800s and have their own government, teachers, hospitals, doctors, and police system. Many Comanche have adapted to the western style of living and many Comanche get a higher education outside of their tribe.
