Painting of prehistoric peoples
Artist's depiction of Jumano Indians hunting bison. Cabeza de Vaca called the La Junta peoples with whom he and his three Spanish companions stayed the "People of the Cows" because they had many bison (cow) robes. In fact, at the time they arrived most of the people "had gone to the cows [bison hunting] as this is the season for them." This 1994 painting by artist Feather Radha can be seen in Restaurante Lobby's OK in Ojinaga, Mexico. Courtesy Elsa Socorro Arroyo.
