Alabama-Coushatta Tribe (Alabama-Coushattas)

The Alabama-Coushatta tribe is a federally recognized Native American tribe of Texas. The tribe is the result of the merging of two southeastern tribes, the Alibamu (or Alabama) and the Koasati (or Coushatta.) The Alabama and Coushatta tribes were longstanding allies, but they had independent leadership until the late 1700's, when colonial expansion forced them to move westward. At that time, many Alabama and Coushatta people banded together to form a single tribe, which is now located in Texas. Another coalition of Alabama and Coushatta people, known as the Alabama-Quassarte, live in Oklahoma today.
