manchac, LA

Caption: In 1699 Iberville said that the Bayougoula had about 250 warriors (1,250 total). War and another epidemic occurred that winter, leaving only 500. A battle with the Taensa in 1706 reduced then to half & drove them downstream with the Acolapissa. The last count taken by the French in 1715, just before the disappearance of the Bayougoula into the Houma, listed them with 40 warriors (200 people).

Thanks!
I knew Baton Rouge meant red stick & had something to do with the Indians. I want to look up to see where the place is that they laid down that stick to end the quarrel over hunting boundaries.

Love the history about the Bayougoula and the Houma tribes. Thanks for sharing. Two Houma tribesmen are currently featured on "Swamp People" show (Discovery Ch)about gator hunters in Louisiana. These brothers are proud of their heritage and dedicated to living the values of their people.

And, oh yes, this series is beautiful!!!!
