Pensacola Indians (Choctaw: ‘hair-people,’ from pansha ‘hair,’ okla ‘people’) A tribe once inhabiting tracts around the present city and harbor of Pensacola, west Florida.  According to Barcia 1Barcia, Ensayo, 316, 1723 they had been destroyed by tribal wars before the Spaniards became established there in 1698, but from a reference in Margry it appears that a few still remained at a later period.
