Harahey.—North of the ancient province of Quivira (q. v.), in a district known as Harahey, lay the home of another Indian tribe, supposed to be the Pawnees of more modern times. This province is called "Arche" in Castaneda's relation of the Coronado expedition, and the Relacion del Suceso spells the name "Harale." It is also given as "Arahei" by some writers. The Wichita Indian name for the Pawnees was "Awahi," a word which in sound resembles Harahey. A map accompanying Hodge's "Spanish Explorations in the Southern United States" shows the province of Harahey in southern Nebraska, along the Platte river, with the southern portion extending into Kansas east of the Republican river and including the greater part of Republic, Washington, Marshall and Nemaha counties. Jaramillo says the people of Harahey were related to those of Quivira.

On Oct. 27, 1904, a monument was unveiled in the city park at Manhattan, Kan., to Tatarrax, the great ruler or chief of the ancient nation of Harahey, who with a delegation of his braves visited Coronado in Quivira in 1541. The members of the Quivira Historical Society believed that Manhattan was somewhere near the geographical center of the ancient kingdom of Harahey, but the probabilities are that Hodge is more likely to be correct, and that the greater portion of the province lay north of the 40th parallel of north latitude, in what is now the State of Nebraska.
