  History
Continued . . .

Anahuac was part of the territory of the Atakapa and perhaps Karankawa Indians, a small and scattered population of nomadic people who resided here for centuries, and fished, hunted, and gathered every available plant and animal resource that the region could offer. The remnants of discarded shell fish and campsites dot the landscape, but there were no permanent settlements here.
