Yustaga Tribe

The Yustaga Indians were a small tribe of Florida, allies of the Timucua tribe. Their language was never properly recorded, but may have been related to Timucua. The Yustaga no longer exist as a tribe. Most of them are believed to have merged into the Timucua tribe, which was crushed by European disease and warfare. Most of the Timucuan survivors were ultimately shipped to Cuba by the Spanish, where their fate remained unknown.
