Andrés Guaçurary or Andrés Guazurarí, popularly known as Andresito (30 November 1778 - 1825) was a caudillo of the province of Misiones, present-day Argentina, and was the province's governor between 1811 and 1822. He was one of the first federal caudillos of the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata and the only one of indigenous origin in Argentine history.
He was born in the misión of Santo Tomé, Corrientes or São Borja to a Guarani family. He was taken as a foster child by José Gervasio Artigas who allowed him to sign as Andrés Artigas, to avoid being excluded by his Guarani origins.
