Sample • Hey, how’s it going. It’s me Mr. Jumano of the Jumano Tribe. Today was a good day. Since I live in southern Texas the Rio Grande was flooded and all of our crops got watered. What do yall eat over there? Also something cool happened, a buffalo charged one of my friends but we were able to kill it and eat it for dinner. I also made a cool rug out of his skin to put inside my adobe house. Maybe you can come see it sometime………. . I hope all is going well with you. I will catch you later. Write back soon.
• Hey, Mr. Jumano, it’s me, Kara the Karankawa. I had the best meal last night. I had fish, alligator and some deer. I used the alligator grease to keep off the skeeters out in the swamps near the gulf of Mexico. That sounds exciting about your buffalo story. I have one. An alligator walked inside my tent last night and I had to scare it off. I was pretty scared and everything. I bet if you were there, you would have protected me, you strong Jumano man. Well I look forward to writing to you again. • P. S. Got a woman? I still have my stripe
