Category: Alabama Choctaw Indian Tribe

The Choctaw Indians once lay claim to millions of acres of land and established some 50 towns in present-day Mississippi and western Alabama. With a population of at least 15,000 by the turn of the nineteenth century, the Choctaw Indian Tribe was one of the largest Indian groups in the South.

Thousands of Choctaw Indians remained in the Southeast even after the Indian removal and are known today as the federally recognized Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and the state-recognized MOWA Band of Choctaw Indians (so named for their location in Mobile and Washington County).
