"Wetumka" is an alternate spelling of Wetumpka, the tribal name of an Alabama Indian band. Although the villagers were Alabama Indians, "Wetumka" was not their own word for themselves-- it was the name given to the village by the neighboring Creek tribe. The name means "tumbling water" in Creek, and refers to a waterfall near the village site.
