A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Ihamba (I’ha-mba). An ancient pueblo of the Tewa on the s. side of Pojoaque r., between Pojoaque and San Ildefonso pueblos, N. New Mex. Bandelier in Arch. Inst. Papers, iv, 85, 1892.

IshtuaYene (Keresan: ishtoa, ‘arrow’). A place above Santo Domingo, N. Mex., whence fled the Cochiti inhabitants of Kuapa when pursued in prehistoric times by the mythical Pinini (q. v. ), or pygmies, according to San Felipe tradition. The place is so called on account of numerous arrowpoints found there. Bandelier in Arch. Inst. Papers, iv, 166, 1892.

Iza. A settlement of which Coronado was informed by the Indian known as The Turk, while on the Rio Grande in New Mexico in 1540-41, as a place, 6 or 7 days journey distant, at which the army could obtain provisions on its way to “Copala” and Quivira. It was possibly imaginary; if not, it may have been a settlement of the Eyish, a Caddoan tribe of Texas.  (F. W. H.)
