TUSANE INDIANS

TUSANE INDIANS. The Tusane (Tuzane) Indians are known only from San Juan Bautista Mission near the site of future Eagle Pass. Since they were also referred to as Carrizos, a name frequently applied to Coahuiltecan bands along the Rio Grande below Laredo, it is believed that they originally ranged that area. The name Tusonid also occurs in the records of San Juan Bautista and may be a variant of Tusane.
