Relationships
Sociopathy (Psychopathy)
Comanche Indians

Do sociopaths usually marry?

Yes. They marry because they are parasites. They want ultimate control of others and marrying provides them some insurance of that control. They want to sponge off others emotionally, financially...any way they can. They will often tell you that you are their "soul mate" and they will want to move in with you. They talk about marriage very quickly...usually within the first few dates. Sociopaths are not the serial killers we think they are. They look like you and I. But they do great harm to others psychologically, emotionally and often financially (although this is not always their goal). There are many unexplained suicides left in the wake of a sociopath. They literally make other people think they're crazy. It is important that people learn what sociopathy means. We have a growing epidemic in our culture and the estimate, unless it's gone up, is that 1 in 25 people are sociopathic. If you're dating someone who lies, who cheats, who has no regard or empathy for you, it is important to look up sociopathy. Criminal backgrounds, checking for aliases, learning about their past...it's all very important. Sociopaths are very good at deceiving people to think they're upright, decent people. They often volunteer and are "pillars of their community". Underneath the facade they are monsters. If you are in an intimate relationship with one you may have already seen the "mask" crack to reveal the abusive people that they are (usually men). Silent treatment, emotional manipulation, gaslighting are all tools they use. They want you to feel guilty and accountable for what they do and to make you think you have problems if you don't do what they want. They can be very covert in their tactics and it doesn't mean that they aren't abusing you. You need to understand ambient and covert abuse. Abuse is not just physically or verbally hurting another. It is any method used to control, confuse, belittle another person. To strip one of their self-esteem. Do sociopaths marry? Yes. They can't stand to be alone. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.

Comanche Indians

How do you use a Comanche coil on a horse like the Comanches did?

They way I understand it, a rope is tied around the horse where the girth would be if it were a saddle. Then you put your legs through the rope and away you go. Please tell me your not going to attempt this. This sounds so dangerous to you and the horse. I have no problem with riding bareback, in fact it's great for balance and seat, but this 'coil' makes me think of bullriders that tie themselves to a crazy bull with a very similar strap.

Clothing
Comanche Indians

What type of clothing did the Comanche indians wear?

Comanche men wore breechclouts with knee-length flaps front and back, originally of soft-tanned deer hide (buckskin), later of trade cloth. Leggings were long and close-fitting, gartered below the knees and with triangular flaps at the side; long, twisted fringes and bottom tabs decorated these leggings, which sometimes also had a bunch of eagle feathers at the outer sides. Shirts were apparently not worn before the time that white traders came; then tanned buckskin shirts were worn until the end of the 19th century, adorned with long, twisted fringes except along the lower edge where a short fringe was cut. Shirts were often painted yellow or green, or a combination of both, while leggings were sometimes painted blue.

The women originally wore a knee-length skirt sewn up the side, with fringe along the seams and hem. A poncho-like top was worn over this. Later they adopted the typical ankle-length three-deerskin dress of other Plains tribes. Dresses were painted a buff colour or a muted lemon yellow. Short leggings were held up with garters and painted to match the moccasins.

Hard-soled moccasins were worn with ankle flaps attached and painted soft uppers. Very long fringes were attached at the heel, or even skunk tails (perhaps as a means of erasing tracks in the dust). Women often combined their leggings and moccasins to create boots with tops that could be folded down. Decoration consisted of a small amount of beadwork, paint and silver disks obtained from the traders.

Buffalo hides with the fur left on provided warm winter robes.

Women wore their hair long and loose, painting the central parting red. Men's hair was worn in two braids with a long scalplock at the back - braids were wrapped with otter fur or strips of red cloth.

The Comanche never seem to have used much quill-work or beaded areas on their clothes, preferring to use paint and edges cut in distinctive long, twisted fringes.

See links below for images:
The women wore deerskin or broadcloth dresses with wide, open sleeves and a slightly flared skirt falling to" below the knees. A shorter piece of cloth, called an "apron", was tied around the waist. They carried a fan with a wooden handle and long feathers, a "purse" that was usually beaded and wore moccasins that came up to calf level. For pictures, google Comanche Indian Dress and you'can see photos from the last Pow-wow in Oklahoma.

What year did the Comanche Indians live in?

The problem with native American history is that it only became history when it was written about by early European explorers; before that we have no record of what happened or when. We can only guess at the movements and locations of the tribes before first contact with Europeans.

The various tribes of the Shoshonean language group (Utes, Snakes, Shoshones and others) were probably located in the Great Basin and Plateau regions west of the Rocky Mountains during the prehistoric period - the same area later occupied by the Nez Perce, Umatillas and others.

The Paiutes remained in Nevada and eastern Oregon while the Ute, Shoshone and Snakes moved eastwards and southwards; the Comanches separated from the Shoshones and moved further southwards to their historic locations - the date this happened can never be known, but the marked differences in what had been the same language indicates it was probably long before explorers arrived.

So the answer is that Comanches became a separate tribe some time before the first explorers arrived and they still exist today.

What is the Comanche word for lonely wind?

tauni-mara its is a phrase in the movie CHISUM, starring JOHN WAYNE, it's the north wind

==========================================================

Answer: Every aspect of the John Wayne film Chisum is false, including all details of the native Americans shown in the movie. The phrase "tahnee mara" was invented by the writer of the original story, who had no absolutely understanding of any native language or culture. Anyone who thinks they can learn history from American movies is extremely foolish.

The Comanche word for "alone" is sʉmʉsa(sʉmʉ' = one), and the word for "lonely" will be close to this. The Comanche word for wind is nʉena or nʉetʉ.

Tahnee mara does not mean anything in either Comanche or "Apache" (unspecified tribe) - the two native groups mentioned in the movie.

How do you say grandma-grandmother in the Choctaw Indian language?

I've heard it two ways. My family and I have said it "pokni" since i was a child, while I've read it as "sapokni" in other places. I am a MS Choctaw Indian and "pokni" DOES mean grandmother, on the other hand "sapokni" quite literally means "old"! Well, I am a Louisiana Choctaw Indian, and we say grandmother as "pokni" also. As far as "sa pokni," 'sa' in itself means "my" in English, so maybe where you heard it the people were trying to say "my grandmother." Hope that helps!

How native Americans cook on hot rocks?

They did not cook on hot rocks, they cooked with hot rocks.

The Crow warrior Two Leggings recalled, when he was a boy, his older brother Wolf Chaser showing him the technique of boiling meat quickly using the materials found nearby: using his knife he dug a small pit in the ground then arrange four short sticks so they would hold the stomach of a buffalo over the pit. When filled with water the bag formed by the buffalo stomach was supported by the bottom and sides of the pit. Pieces of meat were dropped in.

Meanwhile a small fire was made to heat rocks nearby and as soon as they were very hot he carried them using forked sticks and dropped them into the water; as they cooled more hot rocks took their place and they were taken out and re-heated in the fire.

In this way the water was quickly brought to the boil and the meat was cooked.

The tribe commonly known as Assiniboine, from the northern Plains, got their name from this technique; from the Ojibwa words asinii (stone) and bwaan (the Sioux people) - so "Stone Sioux", because of their use of hot stones in cooking.

Why did native Americans paint their faces and ponies before going into battle?

Personal face and body paint was normally the result of a vision quest when a specific design would be revealed to a warrior, along with an animal or bird protector. The warrior, having seen a supernatural vision of a man painted in a certain way, would use the same design himself and would also use the feathers, bones, claws or stuffed skin of the animal or bird as a war "medicine".

Horse painting was different; it was usually a record of the war exploits of the warrior, showing black stripes for the number of coups he counted, horse tracks for stolen horses, red patches for wounds received and so on. The Plains tribes would often paint a circle around each eye of their horse to improve its sight, or zig-zag lightning marks down its legs to make it run faster.

The link below takes you to a photograph of a warrior's favourite war-horse painted and decorated for battle. It has coup-stripes down its leg, a butterfly for speed, a cloth mask with attached antelope horns (again to increase speed) - this horse is probably Hidatsa or Crow, not Apache as it is described:
