POSTITO INDIANS. The Postito Indians, presumably Coahuiltecans, were at San José y San Miguel de Aguayo Mission in San Antonio, during the eighteenth century. Here they were closely associated with the Pampopa Indians. The Postitos may be the same as the Cachopostale (Cachapostate) Indians, who lived with the Pampopas on the Nueces and Frio rivers between the sites of present San Antonio and Eagle Pass earlier in the same century. The Postito Indians were at San José Mission until at least 1785.
