Tacatacuru Indian Tribe

The Tacatacuru Indians were a small tribe of Florida, relatives of the Timucua Indians. The Tacatacuru no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Like many early Florida tribes, the Tacatacurus were devastated by European diseases and conquered by the Spanish. There may be some Tacatacuru descendants in Cuba, where the Spanish shipped some Florida Indians as forced labor, or among the Seminole tribe, which took in survivors from many different indigenous groups. The Tacatacuru language was never recorded, but as they were said to be able to converse with the Timucua, it is likely they spoke a Timucua dialect or a closely related language.
