CAQUIXADAQUIX INDIANS. The Caquixadaquix Indians are known from a single 1691 Spanish missionary report that lists them among the groups southeast of the Hasinai of eastern Texas. Since no distance was specified, it is impossible to tell whether they lived in eastern Texas or western Louisiana. The first part of the name, "Caquixa-," suggests Catqueza, the name of a tribe that lived southwest of the Hasinai. Since the same report also lists "Caquiza" as living to the southwest of the Hasinai, there seems to be no basis for giving serious consideration to linkage of Caquixadaquix with Catqueza. The affiliations of the Caquixadaquix Indians remain unknown.
