Native American people
Talwa is the Muskogee (Creek) word for a tribal town. This word is commonly used not only by Creek speakers but also
by other Southeastern Native American tribes, particularly those who belonged to the Creek Confederacy or the Seminoles.
It is also spelled Italwa, Tvlwv, Etvlwv, Talwv, and other ways, and is the basis for many place names such as Tallahassee, Tulsa,
Talladega, and so on.
