CANONIDIBA INDIANS. The Canonidiba Indians are known from a single 1691 Spanish missionary report that lists them as a group that lived to the southeast of the Hasinais of eastern Texas. As no distance was specified, it is impossible to tell whether the Canonidibas were in eastern Texas or western Louisiana. Their affiliations are unknown.
