too had been west in the buffalo country where they had obtained
these articles in trade. Obviously the woman's story depends on
the supposition of this paper that Cona was in the Upper Brazos
Valley, but hardly can the geography or arithmetic of this paper
be true at all if Cona was somewhere else. This paper offers an
explanation of the Indian woman's story; also her story in a
measure helps to confirm the geography as set out in this study.
Surely this solution of the Coronado tangle that places the East
Texas Indians in the choice camping places of the Upper Brazos
suggests a more peaceful co-existence among the Indians 400
years ago than that known to have existed after the advent of the
horse had implemented the aggressiveness of certain of the north-
ern tribes. If so it may suggest a basis for further study among
the real students of the North American Indian. This paper
refrains from attempting to classify either by tribes or linguistic
stock any of the Indians which Coronado met on the Plains. If
this effort has in a measure helped to satisfy the curiosity of those
who wish to follow the route of Coronado, and if at the same time
it has added any facts of geography which may be useful to the
scholars, it has served its purpose.
