Grigra Indians

The Grigra Indians were a small tribe of Mississippi, members of the Natchez Confederacy. Their language was never recorded, but was probably not related to Natchez (which has no "R" sound.) The Grigras do not exist as a distinct tribe today. Most Grigra people were probably absorbed into the Natchez tribe, where their descendants still live.
