Hecatari. A former Nevome pueblo of Sonora, Mexico, with 127 inhabitants in 1730; situated probably at or near the junction of the w. branch of the Rio Yaqui with the main stream, about lat. 28 30 . Orozco y Berra classes it as a pueblo of the upper Pima.

Hios. A branch of the Nevome who lived 8 leagues E. of the pueblo of Tepahue, in Sonora, Mexico (Orozco y Berra, Geog., 58, 351, 1864). The name doubtless properly belongs to their village.
Huachinera (so called on account of the tascal wood found there in abundance. Rudo Ensayo).
