The Quevene (Guevene) Indians were encountered by Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca on the Texas coast, presumably about 1528. Their area cannot be clearly identified, but it seems to have been in the middle section of the coast. They have been identified with the Cujane Indians, a Karankawan group known to the Spanish over 150 years later. This identification is based on occupation of the same general area and phonetic similarities in the names. It cannot be proved or disproved.
