ATIA AND ATIASNOGUE INDIANS

ATIA AND ATIASNOGUE INDIANS. These names occur in a Spanish document of 1748 that lists twenty-five Indian groups of east central and southeastern Texas who had asked for missions in that general area. About half the names on this list, including Atia (Atai) and Atiasnogue, cannot be identified. The others are identifiable as Caddoans (including Wichita), Tonkawans, Atakapans, and Karankawans.
