Native American Tribes Nations and Confederacies: Apalachee

The Apalachee tribe was once centered mainly in and around Apalachee Bay in North West Florida.

The Apalachee tribe's linguistic stock belongs mainly to the Muskogean branch of the Hokan-Siouan.

Prosperous agriculturalists, they fought off the raids of the Creek until the early 18th century, they were however, then conquered by the combined forces of the Native Americans and the British, who wiped out their villages and sold over 1,000 of the Apalachee into slavery.

Some Apalachee relocated to west central Louisiana, where they were granted land by the French. Despite losing their land and recognition of the government in 1826, many descendents still live in Louisiana today.
