HUANE INDIANS. The Huane (Juana, Juane, Xauana, Xaunzo, Xuana) Indians were first mentioned in 1683–84 as one of the groups that Juan Domínguez de Mendoza expected to meet on the Colorado River east of the site of future San Angelo. The Huanes were one of the Coahuiltecan groups for whom the San José y San Miguel de Aguayo Mission was established at San Antonio in 1720. Their aboriginal range is not recorded, but it was probably the area just south of the Edwards Plateau.
