Yxandi Indians

Thomas N. Campbell General Entry

The Yxandi (Sandi, Ysandi) Indians are known only from the 1730s, when they were closely associated with the Lipan and other Apache groups in west central Texas, particularly along the San Saba River. They were probably one of several bands that later came to be spoken of collectively as Lipan Apache Indians.
