Chakchiuma Indian Tribe
The Chakchiuma Indians were a Muskogean
tribe of Mississippi, relatives of the Chickasaw and
They were sometimes also known as the Chaquesauma. Their language was never properly
recorded, but was clearly closely related to Choctaw and Chickasaw. The Chakchiuma no longer exist as a distinct
tribe. Most of them are believed to have merged into the Choctaw tribe, where "Chakchiuma" continued to be used
as a band name for some time. Most Chakchiuma descendants still live among the Choctaws today.
