Humans have lived in the region of El Paso for thousands of years. One of the earliest cultures in the area were the maize farmers. When the Spanish arrived, the Manso, Suma and the Jumano tribes lived in the area and they were eventually incorporated into the Mestizo culture as well as immigrants from the Central region of Mexico, and the captives from the Comancheria as well as a few other smaller ethnic groups that were in the area.
Present day Juarez was located on the south banks of the Rio Bravo Del Norte (Rio Grande) by the Spanish Conquistadors in 1659. During the early 1680s the small village known as El Paso was the temporary location for Spanish governance in the then territory of New Mexico. In 1692, when Santa Fe was once again reconquered, El Paso again became the capital and remained the largest of the settlements in then New Mexico. In 1848 El Paso seceded to Texas and became a part of the US when Texas overtook it in the 1850s. The current boundary line between Texas and Mexico was drawn up in the Compromise of 1850. The United States Senate is responsible for the boundary drawn up between the 32nd parallel and they ignored the history and the topography that had originally denoted the boundary line.
