Yui Tribe. Meaning unknown.

Connections.-(See Utina)

Location. On the mainland 14 leagues inland from Cumberland Island and probably in the southeastern part of the present state of Georgia.

Villages. They had five villages but the names of these are either unknown or unidentifiable.

History. The name of the Yui appears first in Spanish documents. They were visited by the missionary at San Pedro (Cumberland Island) and appear to have been Christianized early in the seventeenth century. No individual mission bore their name and they are soon lost sight of, their history becoming that of the other Timucua tribes.

Population. The missionaries estimated more than 1,000 Indians in this province in 1602. (See Utina)
