SEPINPACAM INDIANS

SEPINPACAM INDIANS. In the middle eighteenth century the Sepinpacam Indians lived on the north bank of the Rio Grande in what is now Cameron and Hidalgo counties. The name, which is said to mean "salt makers," suggests that this was one of the Coahuiltecan bands that produced salt at La Sal Vieja, a salt lake at a nearby site, later in Willacy County.
