JUNCAL INDIANS

JUNCAL INDIANS. Juncal (Juncataguo, Juncata, Junced, Zuncal) Indians were one of five bands of Coahuiltecan Indians encountered by José de Escandón in the middle eighteenth century near the site of future Corpus Christi. At this time the Juncals were also referred to as Carrizo, a name commonly applied by the Spanish to Coahuiltecan bands along the Rio Grande below Laredo. During the same period Juncal families entered San Antonio de Valero Mission at San Antonio.
