Choctaw Nation
Indian Tribes of the Lower Mississippi

The mission of the project is to add and improve profiles of the Choctaw Nation. Project members take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, removing incorrect information and offer research assistance as needed.

This project is a sub-project of the Native Americans Project. The time frame will cover pre-colonial times until the present.

The Choctaw are an important Nation of the Muskhogean stock, formerly occupying middle and south Mississippi, their territory extending, in their most flourishing days, for some distance east of Tombigbee River, probably as far as Dallas County, Georgia. Ethnically they belong to the Choctaw branch of the Muskhogean family, which included the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Huma and their allies, and some small Indian tribes which formerly lived along Yazoo River. The dialects of the members of this branch are so closely related that they may be considered as practically identical.
