RIO COLORADO INDIANS
RIO COLORADO INDIANS. In the seventeenth century Rio Colorado was the New Mexico Spanish name for the Canadian River of present New Mexico and Texas. Certain Indians on this river became known as Rio Colorado Indians. It is clear that they were Apaches, and it seems likely that they formed one of the early Lipan Apache bands of northwestern Texas and northeastern New Mexico.
