VIDIX INDIANS. This name is known from a single Spanish missionary report (1691), which indicates that the Vidix Indians were neighbors of the Hasinai tribes of eastern Texas and lived an unspecified distance to the southwest. The name Vidix suggests identity with the Bidai Indians, who lived in the same area, but the "Bidey" are also listed in the same report. The linguistic and cultural affiliations of the Vidix remain undetermined.
