Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana Commemorates 47th Anniversary of U.S. Re-Recognition

These Coushattas maintained frequent contact with their kinspeople in Texas by traveling the Coushatta and Alabama Tracesβ€”open paths that connected Alabama and Coushatta villages between Louisiana and Texas. Territorial Period.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} Recent archaeological studies have linked the Coste Coushatta and Moundville Alabama chiefdoms, suggesting common ancestral origins in western Tennessee as early as AD De Soto and his men devastated many towns, took slaves, and spread European diseases to which the Coushattas and other Native Americans had no immunity. In the Coushattas built a lucrative casino and resort north of Kinder in Allen Parish. By the Coushattas and Alabamas had built a prosperous, tightly knit community based on intermarriage between the two groups. This loss of life left many groups vulnerable to attack from the Chickasaws to the west and the Cherokees to the north and east. Despite repeated attacks on their culture, language, and land, the Louisiana Coushatta tribe has maintained its identity and status as a sovereign nation. The Coushatta have historically been allied with the Alabama tribe: by the two cultures had established villages near the junction of the Alabama, Coosa, and Tallapoosa Rivers in present-day Wetumpka, Alabama. The Coushattas are among the few Native American tribes to retain their spoken language, though its usage has steadily declined. Increased hostilities with Anglo Americans encroaching on their territory added to their motivations for leaving. They presented a united front when, in the first half of the eighteenth century, the English and French began building colonies in the Southeast. It is estimated that only two hundred speakers remain. By the end of the nineteenth century, this community had begun to flourish, as it did throughout the twentieth century. The few families that stayed behind escaped detection. Intermarriage between the groups continued, as it does today. In their migration, the Coushattas needed allies and merged with another remnant people, the Alabama. Today, the Coushatta boasts members, with thirty-one percent of them residing outside of Louisiana. Unique to the tribe are pine-straw effigy baskets crafted into a wide range of animal shapes. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}Subscribe today to support our mission and contributors. By the end of the eighteenth century, many of the remaining Coushattas migrated west to Spanish Louisiana when their leader, Red Shoes, reportedly opposed an ongoing war with the Chickasaws. In Red Shoes informed Spanish officials that his warriors had engaged in a war with the Americans, apparently because of land disputes. The Coushatta are also renowned for their basketry tradition, both in the cane-woven and longleaf pine-needle coiled styles. After repeated attacks and encroachment onto their lands, a group of Coushattas, led by Pia Mingo and Red Shoes, cut down their corn, packed their belongings, and headed west for Spanish territory. By Spanish explorer Marcos Delgado noted that Alabama and Coushatta refugees had established towns and villages along protective bluffs where the Alabama, Coosa, and Tallapoosa Rivers converged. Their destination was the Trinity River, a region abounding with game and rich soil, surrounded by hilly prairies and forested plains. Coste dwellings circled an open-air ceremonial court, public buildings, and other community structures that were placed atop earthen mounds. Today the Coushattas continue to support a thriving community and have strengthened their resolve to revitalize their culture. Territorial Period Index letter C. A joint project between the tribe, McNeese State University in Lake Charles, and the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, was begun to preserve the Koasati language, and in the National Science Foundation awarded the tribe and the National Anthropological Archives a Documenting Endangered Languages grant to digitize more than 11, pages of Koasati manuscripts. In the Coushatta Indian Tribe of Louisiana received federal recognition, entitling it to federal protection of its reservation lands. When the British won the war, the French lost control of Louisiana which was ceded to Spain and abandoned their North American colonies.

T he Coushatta of Louisiana also known as Koasati in their native language is the largest of three federally recognized Coushatta tribal governments. In the Alabama and Coushatta population in Spanish Louisiana numbered 1, Conflict between the new settlers and the Native Americans quickly ensued, especially when it came to land rights. As members of the garrison married native women, the Coushattas and Alabamas established extensive kinship ties with the French. A few Coushatta families who had remained on Bayou Chicot soon joined the Alabama village on the Red River in Caddo territory, further integrating the two peoples. Based on Bussell Island in the Little Tennessee River in present-day Tennessee, the Coste chiefdom was closely affiliated with the larger and powerful Coosa paramount chiefdom, which controlled territory from eastern Tennessee to east-central Alabama. Although the majority of Coushattas, along with their Alabama kinspeople, migrated to eastern Texas by , a small group remained near Caddo territory near present-day Shreveport. Ethridge, Robbie, and Sheri M. Supported by an agricultural economy, they often cultivated corn, hunted game animals, and gathered wild plants and fruits. Civilizations of this period generally organized their social and political worlds into chiefdoms: hierarchical, centralized societies consisting of numerous towns and villages that were controlled by a hereditary chief or elite group. Gradually pushed off their land by colonial expansion, the Coushatta migrated to Louisiana in the s. Their strategic location at the river junction proved to be a source of strength as they negotiated with Europeans interested in trade. Their long-standing connection to the French , however, led many members of the tribe to support the French cause. In the townspeople demonstrated their importance in the Southeast by inviting the French to build a trading post and fort known as Fort Toulouse in the heart of their territory. The Coste members established large, sedentary communities near riverbanks or on large islands. The tribe owns acres of federally designated land and operates a successful casino resort that opened in Coushatta Indians originated in the Mississippian Period AD to , one of several eras that archaeologists use to study Native Americans history in present-day southeastern and midwestern United States. Shuck-Hall, eds. Shuck-Hall, Sheri M. Many members continued on to Texas, but a small group remained behind, inhabiting Indian Village near the town now known as Kinder in Allen Parish. Red Shoes and his tribe first established a village on Bayou Chicot in the Opelousas district around Then, in , approximately two hundred men and their families moved to the east bank of the Sabine River, eighty miles southwest of the American trading post at Natchitoches. Many of the French evacuated west, crossing the Mississippi River to live in Spanish Louisiana, and a group of Coushattas joined them. Historically, Coushattas were part of the Coste chiefdom. Probably under the protection of the Caddo Indians, these Coushattas numbered approximately three hundred fifty in By , however, encroaching Anglo American settlement forced many Caddos to join the Coushattas in eastern Texas. Decades later, Coushatta survivors scattered and began leaving their ancient homeland to escape these calamities.
