SEGUJULAPEM INDIANS

SEGUJULAPEM INDIANS. In the middle eighteenth century the Segujulapem Indians, who apparently spoke a Coahuiltecan language, had settlements on the north bank of the Rio Grande in what is now Cameron and Hidalgo counties. The name is said to mean "those who live in the huisaches" (shrubs).
