MIEMBROS LARGOS INDIANS
MIEMBROS LARGOS INDIANS. The Miembros Largos (Spanish for "long limbs") Indians were mentioned in two late seventeenth century lists of Indians that lived in western Texas. In 1683 they were recorded as a tribe known to the Jumano Indians; their area was not identified, but it was said to be large and the people numerous. In 1693 they were named 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 it was said that the Apaches were at war with them. The linguistic and cultural affiliations of the Miembros Largos Indians remain unknown.
