Choctaw Indians

The Choctaw tibes were stationary. Their houses were usually built around cornfields and were made from a combination of plaster made from mud, vines, and bark which went into making the thatched roof.

Originally from the Southeastern United States (modern-day Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, and Louisiana)

Their diet consited of harvested corn, squash, beans, pumpkin and fish. They made meals such as soups and stews

The Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in 1830 was the very first official transfer of land under the Indian Removal Act of 1830. It was between the Choctaws and the U.S. government. Part of the treaty states that the Choctaw would be reimbursed for land improvements and aided in their westward travel. Due to the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek, more than half of the Indians ended up dying of disease and malnourishment on the 500 mile (800 kilometer) trip which would become known as the Trail of Tears.
