Chaskpe Tribe

Chaskpe Indians. A tribe or people mentioned by La Salle in 16831 as having come in company with the Shawnee and Ouabano at his solicitation to Ft. St. Louis, Illinois, his desire being to draw them away from trade with the Spaniards. It is not known to what Indians the name refers, but from the fact that La Salle speaks of them as allies of the Chickasaw, it is probable that their home was south of the present Illinois.
