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.
