This introductory chapter begins by discussing the formation of tribal confederacies; the sources of information about Mississippi’s American Indians; the terms used throughout the book; the geographical limits of the study; and the four distinct language families representing the Mississippi region at the beginning of the eighteenth century (Muskogean, Natchez or Natchezan, Tunican, and Siouan). An overview of the subsequent chapters is then presented.
