Autauga is an Alabama tribal name, referring to both a traditional Alabama Indian village and the band of people who lived there. The village name comes from the Alabama word Aatooka, which refers to the playing field of a traditional Southeast Native American ball game. Other common spellings of the same name include Autaugee, Atagi, Autobi, and At-tau-gee.
