A- Unknown Indian Villages, Towns and Settlements

With the description I could not tell where these villages, towns and settlements were located, as listed in Handbook of Americans North of Mexico.

Anilco. A village, probably Quapaw, presumably on the s. side of Arkansas r., and said to contain 5,000 people when visited by De Soto s army in 1542.

Apontigoumy. An Ottawa village, attacked by the Seneca in 1670. Courcelles (1670) in N. Y. Doc. Col. Hist., ix, 788, 1855.

Astialakwa. A former pueblo of the Jemez, on the summit of a mesa that separates San Diego and Guadelupe canyons at their mouths. It was probably the seat of the Franciscan mission of San Juan, established early in the 17th century. Distinct from Ostyalakwa.

Autiamque. The town, possibly Caddoan, where De Soto’s troops went into winter quarters in 1541-42. It had an abundance of maize and provisions, and lay on the same river as Cayas, apparently Arkansas r.

Awighsaghroone. A tribe, probably Algonquian, that lived about the upper great lakes and which sent a friendly message to the Seneca in 1715. Perhaps identical with the Assisagigroone, or Missisauga.
