Fabrizio De André is an album released by Italian singer-songwriter Fabrizio De André, released in 1981. The songs were written by Fabrizio De André and Massimo Bubola. It is also known as L'Indiano (The Indian) due to the picture of a Native American on the cover.[2][3] The picture is a painting by Frederic Remington named The Outlier.[4]

"Fiume Sand Creek" ("Sand Creek river") refers to the Sand Creek massacre in 1864. "Hotel Supramonte" refers to the kidnapping of De André and Dori Ghezzi in 1979 in the Supramonte area of Sardinia.
