Artistís depiction of a hunter on an overlook high above the Rio Grande. In the 17th century the Chisos bands seemed to have lived mainly south of the river and mainly east of the Rio Conchos. But they ranged widely and were sometimes seen along and across the river. Some modern sources claim that the Chisos primarily lived in the Big Bend area in the vicinity of their namesake Chisos Mountains. However, Spanish documents of the 17th and 18th centuries consistently place most Chiso bands south of the Rio Grande. This 1994 painting by artist Feather Radha can be seen in Restaurante Lobby's OK in Ojinaga, Mexico. Courtesy Elsa Socorro Arroyo.
