NIGCO INDIANS. This name apparently occurs only in the baptismal records (1730) of San Antonio de Valero Mission in San Antonio. Although J. R. Swanton listed Nigcos as a separate Coahuiltecan band, it seems likely that Nigco is a variant of some other group name, possibly Manico. The Manico Indians lived west and southwest of San Antonio in the late seventeenth century.
