The area now covered by Texas was occupied by three major indigenous cultures, which had reached their developmental peak before the arrival of European explorers and are known from archaeology.
The influence of Teotihuacan in northern Mexico peaked around AD and declined over the 8th to 10th centuries. The Paleo-Indians who lived in Texas between — BC may have links to Clovis and Folsom cultures; these nomadic people hunted mammoths and bison latifrons  using atlatls.
They extracted Alibates flint from quarries in the panhandle region. Beginning during the 4th millennium BCthe population of Texas increased despite a changing climate and the extinction of giant mammals.
Many pictograms from this era, drawn on the walls of caves or on rocks, are visible in the state, including at Hueco Tanks  and Seminole Canyon. Native Americans in East Texas began to settle in villages shortly after BC, farming and building the first burial mounds.
They were influenced by the Mississippian culturewhich had major sites throughout the Mississippi basin.
From the 8th century, the bow and arrow appeared in the region,  manufacture of pottery developed, and Native Americans increasingly depended on bison for survival. Obsidian objects found in various Texan sites attest of trade with cultures in present-day Mexico and the Rocky Mountainsas the material is not found locally.
As of the colonial period, Texas was largely divided between 6 culture groups. The Caddoan peoples occupied the area surrounding the entire length of the Red River. All four of them held some land in what is now Texas.
While the northern-most groups faced a cultural collapse due to a drought, many of the southern tribes survive to the present. North of the Pueblos were the Apachean tribes.
Although commonly referred to as one, single nation, they are actually a culture group. The Coahuiltecans, at some point, would have migrated south to merge with their sister tribes.
In the 18th century, the Creek Confederacy formed on the east coast, forcing several smaller Muskogean peoples out of the state.
The Choctaw also split and one of their four subtribes, the Houma came to reside in the eastern region the state before returning to Louisiana. After the American Revolution, many tribes were being consistently moved to migrate further west and give up their lands to American citizens.
This may have been due to the unusual circumstance that the United States still considered many of these tribes as foreign nations, but outwardly claimed the land they stood on.
That being said, the main push was for new, rich farmland as the plantation-style farming on the east coast soon damaged the native soil.The college admissions process can be intimidating, but is also an exciting opportunity to showcase your talents, achievements, and perspective.
