TUSOLIVI INDIANS. The Tusolivi (Fusolibi) Indians are known only from Spanish records of the early eighteenth century. In 1709 the Tusolivis were encountered on the Colorado River southeast of the site of future Austin in association with Simomos (Simaomo) and Yojuanes. Their presence in this area and their association with one tribe of undisputed Tonkawan affiliation have led to their identification as probably Tonkawan.
