Icafui Indians

Icafui Tribe. Meaning unknown.

Icafui Connections. They were undoubtedly of the Timucuan group though they seem to have been confused at times with a tribe called Cascangue which may have been related to the Muskogee or Hitchiti. On the other hand, Cascangue may have been another name of this tribe, possibly one employed by Creeks or Hitchiti.

Icafui Location. On the mainland and probably in southeastern Georgia near the border between the Timucua and the strictly Muskhogean populations.

Icafui Villages. Seven or eight towns are said to have belonged to this tribe but the names of none of them are known with certainty.

Icafui History. Icafui seems to be mentioned first by the Franciscan missionaries who occasionally passed through it on their way to or from interior peoples. It was a “visita” of the missionary at San Pedro (Cumberland Island). Otherwise its history differed in no respect from that of the other Timucuan tribes. (See Utina Indians)

Icafui Population. Separate figures regarding this tribe are wanting. (See Utina Indians)
