A complete listing of all the Indian villages, towns and settlements as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.
Haeser. A former tribe near the lower Rio Grande, living with the Gueiquesales, Manos Prietas, Bocores, Pinanaca, Escaba, Cacastes, Cocobipta, Cocomaque, Codame, Contotores, Colorados, Babiamares, and Taimamares. Probably Coahuiltecan.
Haglli. A Yuman tribe or division which in 1604-05 occupied 5 rancherias on the lower Rio Colorado, between the Cohuanas (Yuma) and the Halliguamayas, of which latter (identifiable with the Quigyuma) they apparently formed a part.
High Tower Forks. A former Cherokee settlement mentioned in a document of 1799 (Royce in 5th Rep. B. A. E., 144, 1887). It was probably one of the places called Etowah (I′tǎwǎ, ), q. v.
Hihagee. An unidentified Lower Creek town mentioned in a census list of 1833. Schoolcraft, Ind. Tribes, iv, 578, 1854.
Hohilpo. Said by Lewis and Clark (Exped., i, map, 1814; p, 596, 1817) to be a tribe of the Tushepaw (q. v. ) residing on Clarke r., above the Micksucksealton, in the Rocky mts., and numbering 300 in 25 lodges in 1805.
Hohio. Mentioned by Coxe (Carolana, 12,1741) as a nation living on the Wabash. Unidentified, and probably imaginary as a tribe, although the name is the same as Ohio.
Honabanou. Coxe (Carolana, 14, 1741) says that “fifteen leagues above the Hohio … to the w. is the river Honabanou, upon which dwells a nation of the same name, and another called Amicoa.” On the map accompanying his work this river is represented as in s. E. Missouri, entering the Mississippi immediately above or nearly opposite the mouth of the Ohio. As there is no stream on the w. side between the mouth of the Ohio and St Genevieve co. that can be called a river, and no Indians of the names mentioned are known to have resided in that section, both must be rejected as un-authentic, and indeed mythical so far as the locality is concerned. This river has evidently been laid down from Hennepin’s map of 1697, relating to the “New Discovery,” which is admitted to be un-authentic so far as it relates to the region s. of the mouth of Illinois r. It is evident, however, that Coxe has attempted to give the name Ouabano (q. v.), which La Salle applied to some Indians who visited Ft St Louis, on Matagorda bay, Texas, from a westerly section. (J. M. C. T.)
Hoyalas (the troubled ones). A Kwakiutl tribe formerly occupying the upper shores of Quatsino sd;. they were exterminated by the Koskimo.
Hullooetell. Reported to Lewis and Clark as a numerous nation living N. of Columbia r., on Coweliskee (Cowlitz) r., above the Skilloot, and on Chahwahnahiooks (Lewis) r., in 1806. It was either a Chinookan or a Salishan tribe.
