Quicuchabe

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Quicuchabe were one of twenty groups of American Indians that chose to join Juan Domínguez de Mendoza on his trek across Texas from the area of El Paso to the area around what is now San Angelo between 1683 and 1684. Mendoza did not indicate at what point the Quicuchabe joined his party; consequently it is impossible to ascertain where, exactly, they lived, and what tribe they were affiliated with. As the tribes between the Pecos River and the vicinity of San Angelo were being pushed by the Apache, it seems likely that the Quicuchabe originated somewhere in that general area.
