Let the collaborators know if we missed a profile.The Keskiak tranferred from their lands in the Powhatan Confederacy and came in 1711 to Mandaville, La. Acolapissa arrived into the Mandaville area all at once, heavily tatood said the recorders of the the colony there. It's on the Mandaville signage in the town of Mandeville, La and their affect on the Choctaw language has been the study of the Tulane Univ. book from which comes the avatar.{{{{{{}}}}}} They were with the Keskiak prior to coming from their association with the Fur Traders and fleets there of in the Tidewaters of the Chesopeake and came in a group all at once. They were "laying waste" some land in Bertie Co owned by Henry King and the next thing is they arrived in 1721, into Mandeville, La and then moved west and then spread out and married into incoming groups (mostly Nottoway via Fishing Creek and Little PeeDee groups). We attached north Ponchartrain profiles who were known native in the area where this language had been spoken. Called "Northshore" today up to "Restertown". Acolapissa was a linguistic group who were Kekiak from the Powhatan Confedercy and impacted by the after effects of Bacon's Rebellion. (Choctaw Geneisis, a book by University of Nebraska publication - and also excerpts from linquistic books from Tulane Univ on the subject.) The area above Lake Ponchartrain was the ancestral home of the Acopolissa Choctaw, a linguistic dialect group affected by Powhatan language influences. Tulane University's linguistic section in their book on area language studies states that Acolapissa meant: "baby chiefs of Powhatan" denoting the influence of incomers into this area affecting the Choctaw language of the area. The impact was on the Bogue Chitto clan, the Pearl River Clan who later went to the Bayou La Combe area and are still there but more so made up of the Houma. The road sign in Mandeville, La mentions their transfer to the "west" meaning, not very far west, to get away from slave traders. The coastal families, some who are members of the MS Band of Choctaw but still reside in "Grandma Country" are some who trace back to sir names such as: Farve, Atwood, Ladner, Redman, Redmond, Ainsworth, Jackson (Red Bird), Gill, Smith, Carriere, Nicholson, etc. A continuous community ended up at Restertown Rd, outside of Poplarville, MS and the connections with their Old Cheraw cousins are still kept.

We attached projects that are associated to this group which their incoming bounty reservations are noted in the map in the media section as impacting the Choctaw dialect in the same area.
