Moctobi Indians

The Moctobi Indians were a small tribe of Mississippi, kinfolk of the Biloxi. Their language was never recorded, but may have been a southern Siouan language like Biloxi. The Moctobi do not exist as a distinct tribe today. Most Moctobi people were probably absorbed into the Choctaw tribe, where their descendants still live.
