José María, Anadarko chief, diplomat, and proponent of peaceful relations with Whites, was born sometime around 1800, probably in the region of present-day Nacogdoches. The residents of that area, a small Caddoan-speaking group known as the Anadarkos, were successful agriculturalists, long-range traders, and members of the Hasinai Confederacy, the largest grouping of Caddoan peoples in Texas. By the time of José María's birth, however, centuries of contact with White men and their missions, diseases, and violent rivalries had left the Anadarkos, and most of the Caddoes of East Texas, severely weakened.
