Coyotero Indian Bands, Gens and Clans

Many tribes have sub-tribes, bands, gens, clans and phratry.  Often very little information is known or they no longer exist.  We have included them here to provide more information about the tribes.

Destchetinaye (tree in a spring of water). A Coyotero band or clan at San Carlos agency, Ariz., in 1881; considered by Bourke (Jour. Am. Folk-lore, in, 112, 1890) to be an offshoot of a former clan of which the Titsessenaye also formed part.
