A querencia is an individual animal’s own abode. It is a flesh and blood creature’s mating, birthing, feeding, playing, sleeping ground. It is the place where he finds subsistence best for himself. The brave bull will often make a querencia of a certain area in the bullring and the matador feels he will do a better job of killing him if he can draw him out of his querencia. An Indian is united with his querencia no matter how far away from it he finds himself and no matter who think he owns it. The Indian yearns to be in I is own home ground in this life and the next. A cowboy’s querencia is anywhere he finds the seldom and meager society of other cowboys, open country and good horses for traveling it, feed and water for cattle and a job to do with cattle.
