Yellow Galactic Sun/ Yellow Crystal Human - Self-Existing Owl Moon of Form, Day 18
Okchai, subtribe of the Muskogee (Creek).
This tribe appears on some of the earliest maps which locate Creek towns, such as that of Popple. Their original seats were on the western side of the Coosa some miles above its junction with the Tallapoosa. By 1738, however, a part of them had left that region and moved over upon a branch of Kialaga Creek, an affluent of the Tallapoosa. Another portion evidently remained for a time near their old country, since the census of 1761 mentions “Oakchoys opposite the said [i. e., the French] fort.”
After the cession of Mobile and its dependencies to Great Britain these probably reunited with the main body. Okchai are indeed afterwards spoken of in the neighborhood of the old fort, but they appear to have been in reality Okchaiutci, part of the Alabama, whose history has been given elsewhere. The last were probably those ”Okchai” who accompanied the Koasati to the Tombigbee shortly after 1763.
The Okchai proper are not noted except under the general term, ”Fish Pond” Indians, but appear in the lists of Swan and Hawkins and in the census rolls of 1832. Hawkins has the following description:
Hook-choie; on a creek of that name which joins on the left side of Ki-a-li-jee, three miles below the town and seven miles south of Thlo-tlo-gul-gau. The settlements extend along the creeks; on the margins of which and the hill sides are good oak and hickory, with coarse gravel, all surrounded with pine forest.
After the emigration they established their square ground on the southern border of the Creek Nation, where it has remained ever since.
A small band is recorded among the Seminoles of northern Florida in 1778. Besides Okchaiutci, which was not properly a branch at all, several settlements were given out by this town. The most prominent and probably the most ancient of these was Łåłogålga (“Fish Place”), from which the traders’ name of “Fish Pond” is derived.*
Kin 60: Yellow Galactic Sun
I harmonize in order to enlighten
I seal the matrix of universal fire
With the galactic tone of integrity
I am guided by the power of flowering.
True initiates value unity, and harmony and are always striving for the highest possible self-integration and experience of universal brother/sisterhood.*
