Migration of Comanches into Texas during the 1700s came at the expense of Plains Apaches, who had long occupied large portions of the southern High Plains and Edwards Plateau. After driving Lipan Apaches away from the Spanish mission Santa Cruz de San Sabá, the Comanche attacked the Lipan who moved to the missions in the El Cañon region of the upper Nueces River.
