Taposa Tribe

Posted By Dennis Partridge On In Mississippi,Native American | No Comments

Taposa Indians. A tribe formerly living on Yazoo river, Mississippi of which little beyond the name is known.  Iberville heard of them in 1699, when they were said to be between the Ofogoula and the Chakchiuma on Yazoo river.  Baudry des Lozières mentioned them in 1802, under the name Tapouchas, as settled in village with the Chakchiuma and Ibitoupa on upper Yazoo river, and in fact they were really the most northerly Yazoo tribe.  They appear to have been one of the tribes confederated with the Chickasaw, and according to Le Page du Pratz spoke the same language.  They occupied 25 cabins in 1730.
