Comancheros


Comancheros
(Sp. model spelled same [komán,t∫éros] < comanche plus the agentive suffix -ero 'profession or trade')
   Traders, generally mestizos, who traded between Indians and Mexicans. Watts indicates that these traders were liaisons for the Comanche Indians and the Anglos. The Comanches would raid Mexican and Anglo towns and sell their spoils to each party through the Comancheros. The Comancheros were generally hated by Texans. Sometimes this term referred to mestizos in general. Cobos glosses Comanchero simply as an "Indian trader."
