CUJACO AND CUJALO INDIANS
CUJACO AND CUJALO INDIANS. The Cujacos and Cujalos, apparently two separate groups, are listed among twenty Indian groups that joined Juan Domínguez de Mendoza on his journey from El Paso to the vicinity of present San Angelo in 1683–84. Since Mendoza did not indicate at what point the two groups joined his party, it is not possible to determine their range or affiliations. However, the Indians between the Pecos River and the San Angelo area were being hard pressed by Apaches at this time, and it seems likely that the two groups ranged between these two localities.
