  • Dragging Canoe's wives and children. Many know about Leaf... but researching online says that there are some family stories about Dragging Canoe and a woman from Lookout Mountain who was from the ancient ones there... some say that she was either Natchez or that she was a Napochi. Dragging Canoe was to have had children with her. Not much, if anything is known about this union.

Footnotes

  1. posted by Elmer Boggs April 22, 2006, Boggs Surname Forum
  2. Napochi. If connected with Choctaw Napissa, as seems not unlikely, the name means those who see, or those who look out, probably equivalent to frontiersmen.
  • Connection. They belonged to the southern division of the Muskhogean proper, and were seemingly nearest to the Choctaw.
  • Location. Along Black Warrior River.
  • History. The tribe appears first in the account of an attempt to colonize the Gulf States in 1559 under Don Tristan de Luna. A part of his forces being sent inland from Pensacola Bay came to Coosa in 1560 and assisted its people against the Napochi, whom they claimed to have reduced to allegiance to the former. After this the Napochi seem to have left the Black Warrior, and we know nothing certain of their fate, but the name was preserved down to very recent times among the Creeks as a war name, and it is probable that they are the Napissa spoken of by Iberville in 1699, as having recently united with the Chickasaw. Possibly the Acolapissa of Pearl River and the Quinipissa of Louisiana were parts of the same tribe.
  • Population. Unknown.
  • Connection in which they have become noted. The only claim the Napochi have to distinction is their possible connection with the remarkable group of mounds at Moundville, Hale County, Ala. (Alabama Indian Tribes)
