AHEHOUEN INDIANS

AHEHOUEN INDIANS. The Ahehouen (Ahehoen, Ahekouen) Indians are known only from records of the La Salle expedition. In 1687 they lived somewhere north of Matagorda Bay, probably near the Colorado River. In 1754 Indians with a similar name, Aguajuani, lived an unspecified distance north or northwest of Nacogdoches. The Aguajuanis are not to be confused with the Yojuanes, whose name (Jujuane) also appears in the same document. No relationship between the Ahehouens and the Aguajuanis has yet been established, and the linguistic and cultural affiliations of both groups remain unknown.
