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.
