MANOS SORDOS INDIANS

MANOS SORDOS INDIANS. These Indians are known only from a Spanish document of 1693 that lists them as one of fifty "nations" that lived north of the Rio Grande and "between Texas and New Mexico." This may be interpreted to mean the southern part of western Texas, since the document also mentions that the Apache Indians were at war with the groups named. Nothing further is known about the Manos Sordos ("still hands").
