In the 19th century, the Choctaw were classified by European Americans as one of the " Five Civilized Tribes " because they adopted numerous practices of their United States neighbors.
The Choctaw and the United States US agreed to nine treaties. By the last three, the US gained vast land cessions; they removed most Choctaw to Indian Territory , sending them on a forced migration far from their homelands.

Cushman noted that Choctaw oral history accounts suggested their ancestors had known of mammoths in the Tombigbee River area; this suggests that the Choctaw ancestors had been in the Mississippi area for at least 4,—8, years.
Direct evidence in the Southeast is meager, but archaeological discoveries in related areas support this hypothesis.
Later cultures became more complex. Moundbuilding cultures included the Woodland period people who first built Nanih Waiya. Scholars believe the mound was contemporary with such earthworks as Igomar Mound in Mississippi and Pinson Mounds in Tennessee.
The original site was bounded on three sides by an earthwork circular enclosure, about ten feet high and encompassing a square mile.
Occupation of Nanih Waiya and several smaller nearby mounds likely continued through CE, the Late Woodland Period. The smaller mounds may also have been built by later cultures.
As they have been lost to cultivation since the late 19th century and the area has not been excavated, theories have been speculation.
The Mississippian culture was a Native American culture that flourished in what is now the Midwestern, Eastern, and Southeastern United States from to CE.
The Mississippian culture developed in the lower Mississippi river valley and its tributaries, including the Ohio River.
In present-day Mississippi, Moundville , Plaquemine ,. When the Spanish made their first forays inland in the 16th century from the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, they encountered some chiefdoms of the Mississippians, but others were already in decline, or had disappeared.
The Spanish built a fort at Joara and left a garrison there, as well as five other forts. The following year all the Spanish garrisons were killed and the forts destroyed by the Native Americans, who ended Spanish colonization attempts in the interior.
De Soto, convinced of the "riches", wanted Cabeza de Vaca to accompany him on the expedition. Cabeza de Vaca declined because of a payment dispute.
De Soto had the best-equipped militia at the time. As the brutalities of the de Soto expedition through the Southeast became known, ancestors to the Choctaw rose in defense.
The Battle of Mabila , an ambush arranged by Chief Tuskaloosa , was a turning point for the de Soto venture. The battle "broke the back" of the campaign, and they never fully recovered.
Hernando de Soto, leading his well-equipped Spanish fortune hunters, made contact with the Choctaws in the year He had been one of a triumvirate which wrecked and plundered the Inca empire and, as a result, was one of the wealthiest men of his time.
His invading army lacked nothing in equipage. In true conquistador style, he took as hostage a chief named Chief Tuskaloosa, demanding of him carriers and women.
The carriers he got at once. The women, Tuscaloosa said, would be waiting in Mabila Mobile. The chief neglected to mention that he had also summoned his warriors to be waiting in Mabila.
On October 18, , de Soto entered the town and received a gracious welcome. The Choctaws feasted with him, danced for him, then attacked him.
The archaeological record for the period between and is not complete or well-studied. It appears that some Mississippian settlements were abandoned well before the 17th century.
Similarities in pottery coloring and burials suggest the following scenario for the emergence of the distinctive Choctaw society. According to Patricia Galloway, the Choctaw region of Mississippi, generally located between the Yazoo basin to the north and the Natchez bluffs to the south, was slowly occupied by Burial Urn people from the Bottle Creek Indian Mounds area in the Mobile, Alabama delta, along with remnants of people from the Moundville chiefdom near present-day Tuscaloosa, Alabama , which had collapsed some years before.
Facing severe depopulation, they fled westward, where they combined with the Plaquemines and a group of "prairie people" living near the area.
When this occurred is not clear. In the space of several generations, they created a new society which became known as Choctaw albeit with a strong Mississippian background.
Other scholars note the Choctaw oral history recounting their long migration from west of the Mississippi River. The contemporary historian Patricia Galloway argues from fragmentary archaeological and cartographic evidence that the Choctaw did not exist as a unified people before the 17th century.
Only then did various southeastern peoples, remnants of Moundville , Plaquemine , and other Mississippian cultures , coalesce to form a self-consciously Choctaw people.
Their homeland was bounded by the Tombigbee River to the east, the Pearl River on the north and west, and "the Leaf-Pascagoula system" to the South.
This area was mostly uninhabited during the Mississippian -culture period. While Nanih Waiya mound continued to be a ceremonial center and object of veneration, scholars believe Native Americans traveled to it during the Mississippian culture period.
From the 17th century on, the Choctaw occupied this area and revered this site as the center of their origin stories.
These included stories of migration to this site from west of the great river believed to refer to the Mississippi River.
In Histoire de La Louisiane Paris, , French explorer Antoine-Simon Le Page du Pratz recounted that " It was perhaps the first European writing that included part of the Choctaw origin story.
A people who by many peculiar customs, are very different from the other red men on the continent These people are the only nation from whom I [ sic ] could learn any idea of a traditional account of a first origin; and that is their coming out of a hole in the ground, which they shew between their nation and the Chicsaws [ sic ]; they tell us also that their neighbours were surprised at seeing a people rise at once out of the earth.
Early 19th century and contemporary Choctaw storytellers describe that the Choctaw people emerged from either Nanih Waiya mound or cave.
A companion story describes their migration journey from the west, beyond the Mississippi River , when they were directed by their leader's use of a sacred red pole.
The Choctaws, a great many winters ago, commenced moving from the country where they then lived, which was a great distance to the west of the great river and the mountains of snow, and they were a great many years on their way.
A great medicine man led them the whole way, by going before with a red pole, which he stuck in the ground every night where they encamped. This pole was every morning found leaning to the east, and he told them that they must continue to travel to the east until the pole would stand upright in their encampment, and that there the Great Spirit had directed that they should live.
In La Salle was the first French explorer to venture into the southeast along the Mississippi River. The first direct recorded contact between the Choctaw and the French was with Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville in ; indirect contact had likely occurred between the Choctaw and British settlers through other tribes, including the Creek and Chickasaw.
The Choctaw, along with other tribes, had formed a relationship with New France , French Louisiana.
As the historian Greg O'Brien has noted, the Choctaw developed three distinct political and geographic regions, which during the colonial period sometimes had differing alliances with trading partners among the French, Spanish and English.
They also expressed differences during and after the American Revolutionary War. Their divisions were roughly eastern, western near present-day Vicksburg, Mississippi and southern Six Towns.
Each division was headed by a principal chief , and subordinate chiefs led each of the towns within the area.
All the chiefs would meet on a National Council, but the society was highly decentralized for some time. The French were the main trading partners of the Choctaw before the Seven Years' War , and the British had established some trading.
Trade deputes between the eastern and western division led to the Choctaw Civil War being fought between and , with the pro-French eastern division emerging victorious.
From to , Britain was the Choctaw main trading partner. With Spanish forces based in New Orleans in , when they took over French territory west of the Mississippi, the Choctaw sometimes traded with them to the west.
Spain declared war against Great Britain during the American Revolution in During the American Revolution , the Choctaw divided over whether to support Britain or Spain.
Some Choctaw warriors from the western and eastern divisions supported the British in the defense of Mobile and Pensacola.
Other Choctaw companies joined Washington's army during the war, and served the entire duration. Choctaw scouts served under Washington, Morgan, Wayne and Sullivan.
Over a thousand Choctaw fought for Britain, largely against Spain's campaigns along the Gulf Coast. At the same time, a significant number of Choctaw aided Spain.
Ferguson wrote that with the end of the Revolution, "'Franchimastabe', Choctaw head chief, went to Savannah, Georgia to secure American trade.
General Anthony Wayne in the Northwest Indian War. George Washington first U. President and Henry Knox first U. Secretary of War proposed the cultural transformation of Native Americans.
He formulated a policy to encourage the "civilizing" process, and Thomas Jefferson continued it. Washington's six-point plan included impartial justice toward Indians; regulated buying of Indian lands; promotion of commerce; promotion of experiments to civilize or improve Indian society; presidential authority to give presents; and punishing those who violated Indian rights.
As the people had a matrilineal system of property and hereditary leadership, their children were born into the mother's clan and gained their status from her people.
In the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, a number of Scots-Irish traders lived among the Choctaw and married high-status women.
Choctaw chiefs saw these as strategic alliances to build stronger relationships with the Americans in a changing environment that influenced ideas of capital and property.
The children of such marriages were Choctaw, first and foremost. Some of the sons were educated in Anglo-American schools and became important interpreters and negotiators for Choctaw-US relations.
Whereas it hath at this time become peculiarly necessary to warn the citizens of the United States against a violation of the treaties made at Hopewell, on the Keowee, on the 28th day of November, , and on the 3d and 10th days of January, , between the United States and the Cherokee, Choctaw, and Chickasaw nations of Indians I do by these presents require, all officers of the United States, as well civil as military, and all other citizens and inhabitants thereof, to govern themselves according to the treaties and act aforesaid, as they will answer the contrary at their peril.
In high Choctaw ceremonial symbolism, they named, adopted, smoked, and performed dances, revealing the complex and serious nature of Choctaw diplomacy.
The Choctaw explained that the bald eagle , who has direct contact with the upper world of the sun, is a symbol of peace. After the rituals, the Choctaw asked John Woods to live with them to improve communication with the U.
In exchange they allowed Taboca to visit the United States Congress. The treaty required Choctaws to return escaped slaves to colonists, to turn over any Choctaw convicted of crimes by the U.
We have long heard of your nation as a numerous, peaceable, and friendly people; but this is the first visit we have had from its great men at the seat of our government.
I welcome you here; am glad to take you by the hand, and to assure you, for your nation, that we are their friends.
Born in the same land, we ought to live as brothers, doing to each other all the good we can, and not listening to wicked men, who may endeavor to make us enemies It is at the request which you sent me in September, signed by Puckshanublee and other chiefs, and which you now repeat, that I listen to your proposition to sell us lands.
You say you owe a great debt to your merchants, that you have nothing to pay it with but lands, and you pray us to take lands, and pay your debt.
The sum you have occasion for, brothers, is a very great one. We have never yet paid as much to any of our red brethren for the purchase of lands After the Revolutionary War , the Choctaw were reluctant to ally themselves with countries hostile to the United States.
John Swanton wrote, "the Choctaw were never at war with the Americans. A few were induced by Tecumseh a Shawnee leader who sought support from various Native American tribes to ally themselves with the hostile Creeks [in the early 19th century], but the Nation as a whole was kept out of anti-American alliances by the influence of Apushmataha , greatest of all Choctaw chiefs.
Early in , the Shawnee leader Tecumseh gathered Indian tribes in an alliance to try to expel U. Tecumseh met the Choctaws to persuade them to join the alliance.
Pushmataha , considered by historians to be the greatest Choctaw leader, countered Tecumseh's influence. As chief for the Six Towns southern district, Pushmataha strongly resisted such a plan, arguing that the Choctaw and their neighbors the Chickasaw had always lived in peace with European Americans, had learned valuable skills and technologies, and had received honest treatment and fair trade.
On Tecumseh's departure, Pushmataha accused him of tyranny over his own Shawnee and other tribes. Pushmataha warned Tecumseh that he would fight against those who fought the United States.
On the eve of the War of , Governor William C. Claiborne of Louisiana sent interpreter Simon Favre to give a talk to the Choctaws, urging them to stay out of this "white man's war.
Stephens, Alabama in mid with an offer of alliance and recruitment. He was escorted to Mobile to speak with General Flournoy, then commanding the district.
Flournoy initially declined Pushmataha's offer and offended the chief. However, Flournoy's staff quickly convinced him to reverse his decision.
A courier with a message accepting the offer of alliance caught up with Pushmataha at St. Returning to Choctaw territory, Pushmataha raised a company of Choctaw warriors with a rousing speech and was commissioned as either a lieutenant colonel or a brigadier general in the United States Army at St.
Stephens to accompany him. He joined the U. Army under General Ferdinand Claiborne in mid-November, and some Choctaw warriors took part in an attack on Creek forces at Kantachi near present day Econochaca, Alabama on 23 December By February , a larger band of Choctaws under Pushmataha had joined General Andrew Jackson 's force for the sweeping of the Creek territories near Pensacola, Florida.
Many Choctaw departed from Jackson's main force after the final defeat of the Creek at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. By the Battle of New Orleans , only a few Choctaw remained with the army; they were the only Native American tribe represented in the battle.
In October , Andrew Jackson and Thomas Hinds were sent as commissioners representing the United States, to conduct a treaty that would require the Choctaw to surrender to the United States a portion of their country located in present day Mississippi.
They met with chiefs, mingos leaders , and headsmen such as Colonel Silas Dinsmore and Chief Pushmataha at Doak's Stand on the Natchez Trace.
Finally Jackson resorted to threats and a temper tantrum to gain their consent. He warned them of the loss of American friendship; he promised to wage war against them and destroy the Nation; finally he shouted his determination to remove them whether they liked it or not.
The convention began on October 10 with a talk by "Sharp Knife", the nickname of Jackson, to more than Choctaws. Pushmataha accused Jackson of deceiving them about the quality of land west of the Mississippi.
Pushmataha responded to Jackson's retort with "I know the country well The grass is everywhere very short There are but few beavers, and the honey and fruit are rare things.
Pushmataha would continue to argue with Jackson about the conditions of the treaty. Pushmataha assertively stated "that no alteration shall be made in the boundaries of the portion of our territory that will remain, until the Choctaw people are sufficiently progressed in the arts of civilization to become citizens of the States, owning land and homes of their own, on an equal footing with the white people.
Article 4 of the Treaty of Doak's Stand prepared Choctaws to become U. ARTICLE 4. The boundaries hereby established between the Choctaw Indians and the United States, on this side of the Mississippi river, shall remain without alteration until the period at which said nation shall become so civilized and enlightened as to be made citizens of the United States Apuckshunubbee, Pushmataha, and Mosholatubbee, the principal chiefs of the three divisions of Choctaw, led a delegation to Washington City the 19th century name for Washington, D.
