Yazoo Indian Tribe
The Yazoo Indians were a small
tribe of Mississippi, relatives of the Tunica and
Their language was never well recorded, but appears to have been a
either a dialect of Tunica or a closely related language.
The Yazoo no longer exist as a distinct
tribe. Most of them are believed to have merged into the Choctaw tribe, where the name Yazoo has
occasionally been used as a place name. Most Yazoo descendants still live among the Choctaws and Chickasaws today.
