Native American Tribes Nations and Confederacies: Alabama- Coushatta

Alabama are the indigenous people of North America, whose language belongs to the Muskogean branch of the Hokan-Siouan linguistic stock, and who the state of Alabama was named after.

Originating from South Alabama in the early 18th century, Alabama were members of the Creek confederacy who during the 19th century they moved to West Louisiana and East Texas.

In Texas the Alabama share a reservation with the Coushatta, who also speak a Muskogean language and in 1990 the number of Alabama and Coushatta grew to over 1,000 in the United States.
