Alabama-Quassarte Tribe (Alabama-Quassartes)
The Alabama-Quassarte tribe is a federally recognized Native American tribe of Oklahoma.
The tribe is the result of the merging of two southeastern tribes, the Alabama and the Quassarte (also known as the Coushatta or Koasati.)
The Alabama and Quassarte 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 Quassarte people banded together to form
a single tribe, which is now located in Texas. Another coalition of Alabama and Quassarte people, known as the Alabama-Coushatta,
live in Texas today.
