PAJASEQUE INDIANS

PAJASEQUE INDIANS. The Pajaseque (Pausaqui, Paxaseque) Indians were one of five Indian groups encountered by a Spanish exploring party near the site of present Corpus Christi in 1746–47. At this time the Pajaseques were also referred to as Carrizos, a general name commonly applied to Coahuiltecan bands near the Rio Grande below Laredo. Later some of these Pajaseque Indians entered San Antonio de Valero Mission at San Antonio.
