Native American Indian language
American Indian society
The Apalachicola Indians were a small Muskogean tribe of Florida.
Their language was never properly recorded, but was probably closely related to Muskogee.
The Apalachicolas no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Most of them moved west along with neighboring
Creek bands, and became
absorbed into Creek culture. Other Apalachicola people joined the Seminole
coalition. Most Apalachicola descendants today live among the Creek or Seminole people.
Alternate spellings that have been used for the Apalachicola tribe include Pallachacola and Apachicola.
