QUIGUAYA INDIANS. The Quiguaya Indians are known from a single Spanish missionary report (1691), which identifies them as enemies of the Hasinai Indians of eastern Texas. The Quiguayas seem to have lived to the west of the Hasinais. Although it cannot yet be demonstrated, the Quiguaya Indians seem to have been the same people as the Quiouahas, reported in documents (1687) pertaining to the La Salle expedition as enemies of the Kadohadachos on the Red River. The Quiouahas have been erroneously identified with the Kiowa Indians, who did not enter the Texas area until the nineteenth century. The affiliations of both Quiguaya and Quiouaha Indians remain unknown.
