TEPEMACA INDIANS

TEPEMACA INDIANS. In the last half of the eighteenth century the Tepemaca Indians, a Coahuiltecan-speaking group, ranged along both sides of the Rio Grande in the area between Laredo and Rio Grande City and also along the Río Alamo upstream from Mier. The Tepemacas appear to be closely related to the Cuero Quemados, who lived farther down the Rio Grande, and it has been suggested that both names refer to the same people.
