Juaneño Indians. A Shoshonean division on the California coast, named from San Juan Capistrano mission, at which they were principally gathered, extending north to Alisos Carek and south to a point between San Onofre and Las flores Creeks. Their language forms one group with those of the Luiseños, Kawia and Aguas Calientes. According to Ames 1 there were only 40 individuals in the neighborhood in 1873; of these most are now dead and the remainder scattered.
