NUESTRA SEÑORA DE GUADALUPE DE ALBUQUERQUE PUEBLO. Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe de Albuquerque, the Indian pueblo attached to Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe de los Nacogdoches Mission, was named by Martín de Alarcón on his inspection tour of Texas in 1718. Fray Gaspar José de Solís, who visited the mission on an inspection tour in June 1768, listed the Indians of the surrounding area as "Nacogdoches, Navidachos, Caddodachos, Asinays and Nazones." According to Solís, the Indians planted large cornfields and supplemented their diets with buffalo, deer, and bear fat. He also noted that the inhabitants had "many good horses," and that all were armed with guns.
