Okelousa Indian Tribe
The Okelousa Indians were a Muskogean
tribe of Louisiana, relatives of the Chickasaw and
Choctaw tribes. Their language was never properly
recorded, but was apparently related to Choctaw and Chickasaw. The Okelousa no longer exist as a distinct
tribe. Most of them are believed to have merged into the Choctaw tribe, where most Okelousa descendants
still live today.
