Native American Records

Chiakanessou Indians. Mentioned by a French trader as a tribe of 350 warriors, associated with the Alibamu, Caouikas (Kawita), Machecous (Creeks), and Souikilas (Sawokli). Possibly the Creeks of Chiaha, the ending being the misspell Creek isti, people; or, less likely, the Chickasaw. On the De l’Isle map of 1707 “Chiacantesou,” which is probably the same, is located much farther northwest, within the Caddoan country.
