Hi, we are going to tell you about some tribes that lived on the border a long time ago. These tribes are really affected by the US/Mexico border now. Back then, it was more peaceful and the Native Americans had more land and natural resources. There was no border running through their land. Click on the links below to find out about how their lives were back then. We will tell you about how they spoke, dressed, ate, and lived. We will also tell you about some of their legends.

Native American Lands: The light areas are the tribes original territory. The dark areas are their current reservations.


Below are links to pages that talk about these tribes now and the ways in which the border affects them.
