EVEA (?–?). Evea, a Comanche Indian chief, ratified a treaty at San Antonio with Governor Juan María Vicencio de Ripperdá in June of 1772. While he was still chief, his son led a raid on Bucareli in May 1778. Additional raids by the Comanches, probably under Evea, were partially responsible for forcing the people of Bucareli to move on east of the Trinity to the site of Nacogdoches, where they began to settle before April 30, 1779.
