SUNIGOGLIGLA INDIANS. Sunigogligla (Seuliyolida, Sunigugliga) is the name of one band of Chizo Indians, who are considered by some writers to be a branch of the Conchos. In the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries the Chizos occupied the area now covered by northeastern Chihuahua, northwestern Coahuila, and the lower part of the Big Bend region of Trans-Pecos Texas.
