QUIUTCANUAHA INDIANS. This name is known from a Spanish missionary report (1691) that indicates that the Quiutcanuaha Indians lived southwest of the Hasinai Indians of eastern Texas, but the distance is unspecified. The name remotely resembles the names of other groups of the same general area, such as Anathagua and Quanataguo, but no identities can be established. The affiliations of all three groups remain undetermined.
