SARACUAM INDIANS. The Saracuam Indians are known only from a Spanish document of 1716, which merely lists them as a group of Indians encountered somewhere between Monclova Coahuila and eastern Texas. It cannot be established that they ever lived in Texas. J. R. Swanton doubtfully included the Saracuams in his list of Coahuiltecan bands.
