YUÉ INDIANS. The Yué Indians were one of several groups commonly referred to as Carrizos, who ranged over parts of northeastern Mexico and extreme southern Texas in the eighteenth century. It is generally believed that all Carrizo bands spoke Coahuiltecan dialects. In the early nineteenth century a group of Yué Indians still lived near Camargo in Tamaulipas.
