Juaneño Indians. A Shoshonean division on the California coast, named from San Juan Capistrano mission, at which they were principally gathered, extending north to Alisos Carek and south to a point between San Onofre and Las flores Creeks. Their language forms one group with those of the Luiseños, Kawia and Aguas Calientes. According to Ames there were only 40 individuals in the neighborhood in 1873; of these most are now dead and the remainder scattered.
