There were three different groups each living in a different region. One core area was along the Rio Grande and Rio Concho river in west Texas, in old Mexico and in New Mexico. Another core region was on the Southern Plains. The third area is less know and was between these Rio Grande and the plains
When the Jumanos celebrated harvest time it gave them an opportunity to get to get to together with other bands and tribes. A special house was prepared for guest, but the Jumanos did not come to greet there guest.Instead they stayed in their own house and piled their belongings in a heap in the middle of the room. Then they sat turned towards the wall, head down with their way of welcoming their visitors
Since The Jumanos lived in a climate that was warm much of the year, the men and children wore no clothing. The warriors would put on buffalo-skin robes for special occasion. Women and older men wore clothing made from deer skins that were tanned until they were very soft. The women made skirt and poncho-type blouses of deerskin and cloaks from the tanned hides of cattels.
Jumanos used skin tepees Stone circles near La Junta de los Rsos and elsewhere have been tentatively interpreted as evidence of this type of housing. Those living at more permanent ranchers built houses of reeds or sticks, while those in the pueblos of New Mexico had masonry houses
Of all the indian tribes that have lived in Texas the Jumanos are the most mysterious.In 1536 they welcomed the Spanish traders, Cabeza de Vaca and his three companions, the first Europeans to travel west along the Gulf Coast into the interior of North America. These Spaniards reported that the Jumanos were very friendly and offered to be their guides into the plains. Before long, the Jumanos had acquired horses from the Spaniards and became busy traders.The Jumano people gradually disappeared during the 1700s as they blended with other Indian groups.
