Koroa Indian Tribe

The Koroa Indians were a small tribe of Mississippi, relatives of the Tunica and Yazoo Indians. Their language was never well recorded, but appears to have been a Gulf language, either a dialect of Tunica or a closely related language. The Koroa no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Most of them are believed to have merged into the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes. Most Koroa descendants still live among the Choctaws today.
