Overview

Certain to become a standard reference in its field, Indians of the Rio Grande Delta is the first single-volume source on these little-known peoples.

Working from innumerable primary documents in various Texan and Mexican archives, Martin Salinas has compiled data on more than six dozen named groups that inhabited the area in the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries. Depending on available information, he reconstructs something of their history, geographical range and migrations, demography, language, and culture. He also offers general information on various unnamed groups of Indians, on the lifeways of the indigenous peoples, and on the relations between the Indian groups and the colonial Spanish missions in the region.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ethnologist Gerber (the Ethnology Museum, U. of Zurich) traces the history, culture, and structure of these peoples since they first crossed the land bridge from Russia during the Ice Age. He examines the continuities and discontinuities in the Indian cultures, and the relations between Indians and white men. The continuities are well- captured in art, and some 200 illustrations, almost half in color, capture the ceremonial brilliance and mythic resonance of the cultures. Working from primary (Spanish) documents in various Texan and Mexican archives, Salinas has reconstructed something of the history, geographical range and migrations, demography, language, and culture of some six dozen named groups that inhabited the area in the 16th through the 18th centuries.
