The Capinan (also called Capina) were a small tribe of Native American people from Alabama and Mississippi. They lived along the Gulf Coast region along the Pascagoula River. They are believed to have been a sub-tribe of the Pascagoula and Biloxi tribes. They might have been the same tribe as the Moctobi. Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville visited the tribe in 1699 and Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville in 1725. They met many French people, and probably spoke both Siouan and French.
