Pensacola Tribe

Pensacola Indians (Choctaw: ‘hair-people,’ from pansha ‘hair,’ okla ‘people’) A tribe once inhabiting tracts around the present city and harbor of Pensacola, west Florida.  According to Barcia 1 they had been destroyed by tribal wars before the Spaniards became established there in 1698, but from a reference in Margry it appears that a few still remained at a later period.
