The Panismahas or Panimaha were a sub-group of the Pawnee. They mainly appear in the 18th century, and how they connect with later 19th century groups is somewhat unclear. They may have been somehow connected with the Skidi sub-group of the Pawnee, but this is not certain.
One group of these people, who may have been specifically part of the Skidi tribe, moved from what is now Nebraska to the Texas-Arkansas border regions where they lived with the Taovayas. It appears that this group was also the Pannis designated in a village along the Sulphur Creek in northeast Texas in a 19th-century Spanish map.
