Traditionally, the English term "Wend" referred to any West Slavs who lived as a minority in German-majority areas.
Nowadays the term is used to refer to the Sorbs, who are a West Slavic people that inhabit parts of the German states of Brandenburg and Saxony. The term is not nowadays used to refer to Poles, Czechs or Slovaks who have migrated to Germany, nor to their descendants.
The Texas Wends are a group of people descended from a congregation of approximately 588 Sorbian/Wendish people under the leadership and pastoral care of John Kilian, who emigrated from Lusatia (part of Germany) to Texas in 1854. Their major settlement is the town of Serbin.
