PARANTONE INDIANS. These Coahuiltecan Indians are known through a single missionary report (1794) from Nuestra Señora del Espíritu Santo de Zúñiga Mission, near Goliad. In this report they are identified as a subdivision of the Aranama Indians, and at that time only twenty-one remained. The original territory of the Parantones was probably the same as that of the Aranamas.
