ORCAN INDIAN VILLAGE

ORCAN INDIAN VILLAGE. The Orcan Indian village was mentioned to Henri Joutel by the Ebahamo Indians as located north and northwest of the Colorado River. In some of his accounts Joutel used the terms Orcan, Piou, and Peinhoun interchangeably, and some confusion exists as to whether these names may have designated the same or closely related villages.
