TETECORE INDIANS. The Tetecore Indians lived in Coahuila during the latter part of the seventeenth century. They may have been the same as the Tet Indians, who in the early eighteenth century were reported as living in Texas somewhere north of the site of Eagle Pass. Both are assumed to have been Coahuiltecan in language.
