Aranama Indians. A small agricultural tribe formerly living on and near the south coast of Texas; later they were settled for a time at the mission of Espiritu Santo de Zúñiga, opposite the present Goliad, where some Karankawa Indians were also neophytes. It is reported that they had previously suffered from an attack by the Karankawa. Morse located them in 1822 on San Antonio River and estimated them at 125 souls. In 1834 Escudero 1Escudero, Not. Estad. de Chihuahua, 231 spoke of them as follows: “The same coast and its islands are inhabited by the Curancahuases and Jaranames Indians, fugitives from the missions. The larger portion have lately settled in the new mission of Nuestra Señora del Refugio, and today very few rebellious families remain, so that the injuries caused by these cowardly but cruel Indians have ceased.” As a tribe the Aranama were extinct by 1843.
