Okechoyatte is an Alabama tribal name, referring to both a traditional Alabama Indian village and the band of people who lived there.
Although the villagers were Alabama Indians, "Okechoyatte" was not their own word for themselves-- it was a name given to the village by the
neighboring Creek tribe. Other common spellings of the same name include Oktcaiutci, Okchaiutci, Oktchoyudshi, Wacksoyochees, Hook-choie-oo-che,
