IRRUPIEN VILLAGE. Irrupien Village, on a branch of the Trinity River in territory occupied mainly by Caddoan tribes, was visited by Louis Juchereau de St. Denis in 1717. The similarity of the name to the word Ervipiame (or Yerbipiams), a Tonkawa group living just west of this location, may be significant.
