Cotonam Tribe

Cotonam Indians. A tribe affiliated with the Carrizos of the Coahuiltecan family and living in their vicinity, though their dialect differs largely from the Comecrudo language. The last of this tribe were at La Noria rancheria, in south Hidalgo County, Texas, in 1886, and one man at Las Prietas was slightly acquainted with the native dialect. They call an Indian χaíma, and are the Xaimame or Haname of the Texan tribes farther north. The Tonkawa say that the Cotonam were not cannibals and that they wore sandals instead of moccasins.
