SIQUIPIL INDIANS

SIQUIPIL INDIANS. Siquipil, Pajalat, and Tilpacopal were names of three Coahuiltecan bands for whom the Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción de Acuna Mission was established at San Antonio in 1731. The aboriginal location of the Siquipil band remains unknown. Since they entered this mission with groups from the area south of the Edwards Plateau, it is sometimes assumed that they came from this area also.
