NECPACHA INDIANS. The Necpacha (Nacpacha) Indians are known only from records at San Antonio de Valero Mission in San Antonio. J. R. Swanton listed them as Coahuiltecan, but this identification seems to have been based on similarity of the name to the names of other Coahuiltecan bands, such as Pachal and Pachalaque.
