NABEYXA INDIANS

NABEYXA INDIANS. The Nabeyxa (Nabeyeyxa) Indians are referred to in a single Spanish document written late in the seventeenth century. As the name occurs in a list of twenty-one tribes, nineteen of which are clearly Caddoan, it seems likely that the Nabeyxas were a small and perhaps peripheral tribe of the southwestern or Hasinai group of Caddo Indians in eastern Texas. J. R. Swanton has suggested that this name may be a synonym for Nabedache, but both names occur on the same list.
