QUEPANO INDIANS. The Quepano (Cuepano, Quepana) Indians, who were apparently Coahuiltecans, lived near Cerralvo in northeastern Nuevo León in the latter part of the seventeenth century. Some Quepanos were at San Antonio de Valero Mission in San Antonio during the first half of the following century.
