CATUJANO INDIANS. In the late seventeenth century the Catujano (Catajane, Catuxane) Indians, apparently a Coahuiltecan-speaking people, ranged from northeastern Coahuila across the Rio Grande into the southwestern part of the Edwards Plateau in Texas. They do not seem to have survived into the eighteenth century.
