The Comanche’s horsemen established the nomadic lifestyle of nomadic equestrians that was to be followed by the Plains tribes of the 19th and 20th centuries. Bands formed by the Comanche based on their kinship, and other social relations. People also had the buffalo as a valuable resource. The buffalo provided food, clothing and shelter for the people.

Tshaonline.org It is also mentioned that Comanches were exceptional horsesmen who dominated Texas’ Southern Plains. They played an important role in Texas frontier history for much of the 18th and 19th centuries. Anthropic evidence suggests that the Comanches were originally a mountain tribe. They are a branch from the Northern Shoshones who lived in the Great Basin area of the west. United States They were primitive hunters and gatherers, with no modern technology. Cultural and linguistic similarities prove the Shoshone roots of the Comanches. Comanche is almost identical in language to Northern Shoshones and it is derived directly from Uto-Aztecan. In the last seventeenth century, horses were acquired by the Comanches, which significantly altered their culture. As a result, the life of this pedestrian tribe changed dramatically. They have become a powerful, mounted and well-equipped people. The new mobility enabled them to leave the mountain and Shoshone family and go on to the plains in eastern Colorado and western Kansas where there was plenty of game.

How did the Comanche culture and lifestyle look like? The Comanche was a Uto-Aztecan tribal that arrived in Texas in the 1700s from the north and drove out the Lipan Apaches.

They were however closely allies with Kiowa tribe. Later, with Southern bands of the Cheyenne, Arapaho. Their enemies’ scalps were used as trophies. They used torture and battlefield atrocities to humiliate and intimidate their enemies. They were humiliated and intimidated by their name for themselves was ‘Nermurnuh’ meaning The “true human” The “true humans” were excellent hunters. They adopted the nomadic lifestyle of living in tepees on the Great Plains and subsequently acquired horses. Khristina Goof from Loum Cameroon, last edited 77 Days ago [4]
Based on an article by legendsofamerica.comAlthough the Comanche name is widely known, its origin is not clear. There are two accounts of its origin, the most accepted being a Spanish corruption of a name the Ute called them — Kohmahts, meaning “those who are against us.” The second account is that it was a derivative of the Spanish word amino ancho, meaning “wide trail.” They were also called Paducah by early French and American explorers, but the preferred name of the tribe has always been Numunuh, meaning “The People.” The Comanche speak Uto-Aztecan languages, almost identical to Shoshone language.
