Taposa Indians

The Taposa Indians were a small tribe of Mississippi, relatives of the Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes. They were sometimes also known as the Tapoucha. Their language was never properly recorded, but was probably a Muskogean language like Choctaw and Chickasaw. The Taposa no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Most of them are believed to have merged into the Choctaw tribe, where their descendants still live.
