Coweta

Coweta – Consistently referred to as a head town, where the “emperor” resides, they are first found in the upper regions of the Ocmulgee River. Between 1670-1700 they live at the headwaters of the Chattahoochee and Coosa Rivers. After the Yamasee War (1715-17) they relocate to the west side of the Chattahoochee River, 3 miles below the falls. The 1832 census reports five bands of Coweta Indians: Koochkalecha Town, Toosilkstorkoo Hatchee, Warkooche Hatchee, Halle-wokke Yoaxarhatchee, Cho-lose-parp Kar (or Kotchar, Tus-tun-nuckee’s town). The Coweta chief, William McIntosh, plays a major role in the Creek-Indian Wars and subsequent removal.
