The southern and eastern parts of Yucatan, from Tuluum in the north to the Rio Hondo in the south, are occupied today by two tribes of Maya Indians, the Santa Cruz and Icaiche or Chichanha. The number of Santa Cruz was estimated by Sapper in 1895 at about 8,000 to 10,000, but at the present day has probably been reduced to about 5,000.
