COME CIBOLAS INDIANS
COME CÍBOLAS INDIANS. These Indians are known only from a Spanish document of 1693 which lists the Come Cíbolas ("bison eaters") as one of fifty "nations" that lived north of the Rio Grande and "between Texas and New Mexico." This may be interpreted to mean the southern part of western Texas, since the document also mentions that the Apaches were at war with the groups named. Nothing further is known about the Come Cíbolas. They were evidently not the same as the Cíbolas, whose name occurs on the same list.
