TAHIANNIHOUQ INDIANS. The Tahiannihouq (Tahinnihouq) Indians are known only from the records of the La Salle expedition (1687), in which they are identified as enemies of the Kadohadacho Indians on the Red River. There is no indication of where the Tahiannihouqs lived, but it seems likely that their area was north of the Red River and hence outside of present Texas. The Tahiannihouq Indians have been erroneously identified with the Kannehouans who, according to records of the same expedition, lived north or northeast of Matagorda Bay, possibly near the Brazos River.
