Native American Records

Bahacecha Indians. A tribe visited by Onate in 1604, at which time it resided on the Rio Colorado in Arizona, between Bill Williams fork and the Gila. Their language was described as being almost the same as that of the Mohave, whose territory adjoined theirs on the north and with whom they were friendly. Their houses were low, of wood covered with earth. They are not identifiable with any present Yuman tribe, although they occupied in Onate’s time that part of the Rio Colorado valley inhabited by the Alchedoma in 1776.
