Coffee and Conversations: Chucochatti, Conflict at the Red Town, 1836

April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

free
“Chucochatti, Conflict at the Red Town, 1836” Established in 1767, Chucochatti was among the oldest Seminole villages located in Central Florida. Founded by Upper Creek migrants from Central Alabama, Chucochatti was unique for being a Muskogee-speaking village in predominantly Miccosukee-speaking region. Weakened by raids in the decades before the 2nd Seminole War (1835-1842), the residents largely conceded to removal to the Arkansas Territory. Despite the village’s abandonment, the Chucochatti area was a focal point of General Scott’s 1836 campaign and repeatedly reoccupied by Seminoles during the war. This presentation discusses the recent historical and archaeological investigations conducted by the Gulf Archaeology Research Institute to document evidence of the villages of Chucochatti and the U.S. military actions in the region.
