HOUANEIHA INDIANS. The Houaneiha Indians are known only from documents of the La Salle expedition, in which they are identified as enemies of the Kadohadacho Caddo Indians in the late seventeenth century. It is possible that they lived north of Red River and only entered the area of future Texas to attack the Kadohadachos.
