Most Native Americans were forced to leave Mississippi during the Indian Removals of the 1800's. These tribes are not extinct, but except for the descendants of Mississippi Indians who escaped from Removal, they do not live in Mississippi anymore. They were moved to Indian reservations in Oklahoma and Texas instead. If you click on the link for each tribe, you can find more information about them.
