Mission San Luis de Apalachee

"Mission San Luis de Apalachee," also known as "Mission San Luis de Talimali," is the name of a major settlement of the Apalachee people, an American Indian tribe of Florida. The original Apalachee name for their settlement was Anhaica, and it was located within the modern-day city of Tallahassee. "Mission San Luis" was the name of the Franciscan mission that was established in Anhaica by Spanish friars, by which name the whole community came to be known.
