Geocache Description:

Native American Tribes series.

Avavares

A former tribe of Texas, possibly Caddoan, which lived "behind" the Quintole toward the interior, and to which Cabeza de Vaca, in 1527-34, fled from the Mariames. Their language was different from that of the Mariames, although they understood them. They bartered bones, which the Mariames ground and used for food, and also traded in bows. While staying with the Avavare,s Cabeza de Vaca and his companion became noted for their successful treatment of the sick. The people seem to have been kindly disposed and different in habits from the coast tribes.
