American Indians
         "The First Families of Louisiana on the Eve of French Settlement -- At the time of French settlement in 1700, many Indian groups lived in Louisiana, which then encompassed the Mississippi Valley and Gulf Coast region. Several Louisiana societies established extensive cultural and economic exchange networks and traded material goods, belief systems, language patterns, technology, and recreational practices with other native groups in North America and probably even in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, and later with European settlers." - The Cabildo

Choctaw of Bayou Lacomb (St. Tammay Parish)
         "The earliest writers, as well as the oldest maps of the region, designate the Ncolapissa as the tribe occupying the region now included within the limits of St. Tammany parish, at the time of the discovery and settlement of lower Louisiana by the French. The Acolapissa were so closely connected with the Choctaw proper that it is not possible now to distinguish between them." - quote from the Web Site

Paleo-Indian / Neo-Indian
         "Twelve thousand years ago, the average temperature in the southeastern United States was five to 10 degrees cooler than it is now, and the climate was drier. The landscape was covered with oak and pine forests mixed with open grasslands. Some familiar animals such as rabbits and deer lived in the area, but many other animals that have become extinct in North America were also common then. Among them were the camel, giant armadillo, short-faced bear, long-horned bison, mastodon, tapir, ground sloth, saber-toothed tiger, mammoth, dire wolf, and horse (the horse was later reintroduced by the Spanish)." - excerpt from the Web Site

Sovereign Nation of the Chitimacha
         "In the early 1700s, the Chitimacha were the most powerful tribe of the northern gulf coast west of Florida in the United States territory. We also attained prominence in early Louisiana history due to our long war with the French and the number of Chitimacha slaves in colonial families as a result of the war. We were known as the best basket makers in the entire Gulf region." - excerpt from the Web Site
