HINEHI INDIANS. The Hinehi were one of 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 Hinehis joined his party, it is not possible to determine their range or affiliations. However, the Indians between the Pecos River and the area around future San Angelo were being hard pressed by Apaches at this time, and it seems likely that the Hinehi Indians ranged between these two localities.
