Acolapissa Indians

The Acolapissa Indians were a small tribe of Louisiana, relatives of the Choctaw Indians. Their language was poorly attested, but was probably a dialect of Choctaw. The Acolapissas were originally politically distinct from the Choctaws, having multiple villages and a substantial territory of their own, but they were devastated by disease in the 1700's and merged into the Choctaw and Houma nations, where most of their descendants live today.
