American Indian cultures
The Ibitoupa Indians were a small tribe of Mississippi,
relatives of the Chickasaw and
Their language was never properly
recorded, but was probably a Muskogean language like Choctaw and Chickasaw. The Ibitoupa no longer exist as a distinct
tribe. Most of them are believed to have merged into the Choctaw tribe, where their
descendants still live.
