CONEJO INDIANS

CONEJO INDIANS. The Conejo (Spanish for "rabbit") Indians are considered to be a subdivision of the Conchos, a Uto Aztecan group of northern Chihuahua. In a Spanish document of 1693 the Conejos were identified as living north of the Rio Grande, presumably in what is now Trans-Pecos Texas, but in the first half of the eighteenth century the Conejos were known only from the lower Conchos River in Chihuahua.
