TCHANHIÉ INDIANS. The Tchanhié Indians are known only from records (1687) of the La Salle expedition, which merely identify these Indians as enemies of the Kadohadachos on the Red River in extreme northeastern Texas. It is not known whether they lived in Texas or in adjoining parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas, or Louisiana. Their affiliations have yet to be determined.
