GARZA INDIANS. The Garza Indians, a Coahuiltecan band of northeastern Mexico, were one of several groups commonly referred to as Carrizo, and sometimes ranged north of the Rio Grande. In the middle eighteenth century the Garzas lived on the south bank of the Rio Grande near Mier and Revilla, and as late as 1828 some of these Indians were still living near Mier.
