PARCHAQUE INDIANS. The Parchaque (Pachague, Pachaque, Parchaca) Indians were Coahuiltecan Indians who are known only from the late seventeenth century. At this time they lived in northeastern Coahuila but sometimes crossed the Rio Grande to forage in Texas south of the Edwards Plateau. Apparently they were not the same people as the Paachiques, whose name sometimes appeared on the same local list of bands. Identifications of Parchaque Indians with Pachoche and Pakawa Indians are not phonetically acceptable.
