PANEQUO INDIANS. The Panequo (Panego) Indians are known only from documents (1687) of the La Salle expedition, which indicate that these Indians lived well inland to the north or northeast of Matagorda Bay, possibly near either the Colorado or the Brazos River. Identification of the Panequod with the Pamoque (Pamaque) Indians has been suggested but not demonstrated, and it seems likely that the two groups were unrelated.
