QUIBAGA INDIANS. The Quibaga Indians are known from a single Spanish missionary report (1691), which identifies them as enemies of the Hasinai Indians of eastern Texas. The linguistic and cultural affiliations of the Quibagas remain unknown. The name is similar to that of the Quitaca Indians, a group, possibly Wichitas, that lived in the same general area during the eighteenth century, but there is no proof that the two names refer to the same people.
