Choctaw (possibly a corruption of
the Spanish chcdu, 'flat' or 'flattened,' alluding to the custom of these
Indians of flattening the head). An important tribe of the Muskhogean
stock, formerly occupying middle and south Mississippi, their territory
extending, in their most flourishing days, for some distance east of
Tombigbee River, probably as far as Dallas County, Ga. Ethnically they
belong to the Choctaw branch of the Muskhogean family, which included the
Chickasaw, Hunt and their allies, and some small tribes which formerly

closely related that they nay be considered as practically identical
