Guale Indians

The Guale Indians were a moundbuilding tribe of Georgia, allies of the Creek Indians. Their language was poorly attested, but appears to have been Muskogean. The Guales no longer exist as a distinct tribe. They merged into the Creek and Yamasee tribes after a devastating smallpox epidemic. Most Guale descendants live among the Creeks today, although some may have retreated into Florida along with members of other southern tribes and ended up joining the Seminole Nation.
