The Houma tribe was an offshoot of the Choctaw nation. Though they spoke a dialect of the Choctaw language and shared most of their culture with their Choctaw relatives, they were politically independent. The Houmas originally lived in eastern Mississippi, but were driven across the border into Louisiana with other eastern Mississippi tribes, where they merged with Cajun communities. The Houma tribe remains in Louisiana to this day. The Houma dialect of Choctaw has not been actively spoken since the 1800′s — most Houma people speak English and/or Cajun French today, though some elders still speak a unique Houma variety of creole French. Today, some Houma people are working to revive their original Indian language as well.
