PERPACUG INDIANS. The Perpacug (Pexpacux) Indians appear to have ranged the lower Rio Grande valley near the Gulf Coast. The maps of Jiménez Moreno and G. Saldivar place them on the north bank of the river in the area that is now Starr County, but the surviving records do not seem to indicate such a precise location.
