Chichimecas
Región habitada por bárbaros, por gente sin cultura, por salvajes.
Los pueblos chichimecas no formaban una unidad étnica ni lingüística, eran una serie de pueblos que habitaron al norte de México.

En la Sierra Gorda habitaban dos grupos. Los Jonaces que eran nómadas, cazadores recolectores y belicos. Los Pames eran eran sedentarios, con agricultura a pequeña escala y pacíficos, quizá por que vivían más cerca de pueblos habitados por españoles, criollos o de comunidades locales aliadas y adaptadas a los españoles, como los otomíes que habitaban en Tilaco y otras zonas.

Chichimecas
A region inhabited by barbarians, by people without culture, by savages.
The Chichimeca people did not form an ethnic or linguistic group, they were a series of peoples that inhabited the north of Mexico.

In Sierra Gorda two groups of Chichimecas lived here. The Jonaces were nomads, hunter-gatherers and warlike. The Pames were sedentary, practiced small-scale agriculture and were peaceful, perhaps because they lived closer to towns inhabited by Spaniards, Creoles or local communities allied and adapted to the Spanish, for example the Otomí who lived in Tilaco and other areas.
