Chatot Indians – A tribe or band which French settled south of Ft. St. Louis, Mobile Bay, Alabama, in 1709. Bienville wishing to change his settlement, ” selected a place where the nation of Chatot were residing, and gave them exchange for it a piece of territory fronting on Dog River, 2 leagues farther down”.1. According to Baudry des Lozieres2 the Chatot and Tohome tribes were related to the Choctaw and spoke the French and Choctaw languages.

  1. Can I please be able to connect my father to his tribe and to you to share his knowledge before his departure from his current life. He was the son of the chief who to cancer died in the early 1930’s
    His son Eugene my father was taken from the chauttau his father acquired from the religious laws in order to save his people. My father spent little time with his people
    His dying request is for me to put him in contact with them

    Sincere blessings beloved a
