MERHUAN INDIANS

MERHUAN INDIANS. The Merhuan (Merguan, Merhuam) Indians are known only from the baptismal records of the San Antonio de Valero Mission at San Antonio. Their aboriginal area and affiliations are unknown. They were apparently not the same as the Muruam Indians, who were at the same mission, and attempts to equate the Merhuans with both Meracoumans and Menenquens are not convincing.
