“Chahta” is what the Choctaw people call themselves, which is the name of a legendary Choctaw leader and also means “the people.” The Choctaw homeland includes what is now eastern Mississippi and western Alabama. In 1825, William Clark, of the Lewis and Clark expedition, met with the Choctaw and Chickasaw to convince them to move west. With the signing of the Dancing Rabbit Creek Treaty in 1830, the Choctaw were forced to permanently move to their present home in Oklahoma.
