Description

Choctaw origin stories describe Nvnih Waiya, located in what is now Winston County, Mississippi, as the birthplace of Choctaw society. For thousands of years the ancestors of today's Choctaw people supported their families by farming and hunting. The communities they formed constantly changed and adapted through time. Moundville, built in part by the ancestors of today's Choctaws, grew into the second largest pre-contact settlement north of Mexico a few centuries before Europeans arrival.

Spanish conquistadors landed on the Gulf Coast in the early 1500s. For the next several decades ancestral Choctaw people and their neighbors intermittently faced waves of European diseases and Spanish military invasions. In part because of Choctaw military resistance the Spanish left and the Choctaw Homeland was not entered by large groups of Europeans again until the French came in the late 1600s. During the interim the Choctaws adopted many survivors from other local tribes.
