Tamoucougoula

"Tamoucougoula" is an alternate name for the Avoyel tribe of Louisiana. It was the name for the tribe in the language of one of their Muskogean-speaking neighbors. (The exact origins of this name are uncertain, but the ending "ougoula" comes from the Muskogean word okla, "people," and is commonly used in Muskogean tribal names.)
