G- Kansas Indian Villages, Towns and Settlements

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

Gakhulin (village on a stream). One of the 4 Kansa villages in 1820.

Gakhulinulinbe. A former Kansas village near the head of a s. tributary of Kansas r., on which a trading post was established.

Guaes. A people of whom Coronado learned in 1542. They evidently lived E. of Quivira, the Wichita country of E. central Kansas, of whose people they were enemies. The name bears a resemblance to Kaw, but as this is the French traders contraction of Kansa, first applied not earlier than the first quarter of the 19th century, the two peoples were probably not the same, Guas or Guaes being apparently a Wichita or Pawnee name, or a corruption thereof.
