TUCUBANTE INDIANS

TUCUBANTE INDIANS. The Tucubante Indians are known from a document of 1754, which identifies them as part of a large group of Apaches and remnants of other tribes encamped near the site of present Eagle Pass. It is said that these Apache Indians were the same as those living near San Antonio, who were mainly Lipan Apaches. The group near Eagle Pass also included Natage (Mescalero Apache) Indians. It thus appears that Tucubante was the name of one band of Lipan Apaches.
