Tioux Indians

The Tioux Indians were a small tribe of Mississippi, members of the Natchez Confederacy. They were sometimes also known as the Tiou or the Thysia. Their language was never recorded, but was said to be different from Natchez. The Tioux do not exist as a distinct tribe today. Most Tioux people were probably absorbed into the Natchez tribe, where their descendants still live.
