Sims Settlement, Ft Hampton

Fort Hampton at the Doublehead Reserve became home to the soldiers' whose duty it was to rid the reservation lands of "intruders." A list dated

By the 17th century, the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Creek were the four major nations in Alabama (Atkins 1994:8). For the purposes of this thesis, the historical discussion begins with the Cherokee, who expanded from the east into northern Alabama in the late 1700s and early 1800s, and the Chickasaw who expanded from the west, inhabiting Mississippi and northwestern Alabama from the early 1700s and claimed Cherokee lands in north Alabama after their cession to the United States in 1806.

Anglo traders had been in contact with Native American groups in the Southeast since the mid- to late 1600s. Around 1650, the Chickasaw settled around present-day Tupelo, Mississippi, having been driven from their more dispersed towns by the Iroquois (Ethridge 2010:143). The Chickasaw resettlement occurred at the same time the Chickasaw began trade relations with Europeans. Tupelo was a strategic choice that placed the Chickasaw at a junction of trade paths that gave the Chickasaw an advantage to become “pivotal players in the new political economy of the South” (Ethridge 2010:143). Unlike other tribes on the Mississippi River who encountered

Anglo traders had been in contact with Native American groups in the Southeast since the mid- to late 1600s. Around 1650, the Chickasaw settled around present-day Tupelo, Mississippi, having been driven from their more dispersed towns by the Iroquois (Ethridge 2010:143). The Chickasaw resettlement occurred at the same time the Chickasaw began trade relations with Europeans. Tupelo was a strategic choice that placed the Chickasaw at a junction of trade paths that gave the Chickasaw an advantage to become “pivotal players in the new political economy of the South” (Ethridge 2010:143). Unlike other tribes on the Mississippi River who encountered
European forces in the mid-16th to mid-17th centuries, the Chickasaw seem to have retained their social, political and cultural organizations longer and were slower to change (Ethridge 2010:143).
The Chickasaw were among the first British-allied slave raiders in the mid-continental interior, and were subsequently armed with European weaponry from the earliest interactions. The Chickasaw took slaves from the Caddoan and Illinois tribes and other smaller groups nearby, which increased conflicts with neighboring tribes (Brightman and Wallace 2004:490- 491). By 1690, the Chickasaw were the primary slave raiding tribe in the Southeast (Ethridge 2010:139). While a small group of Chickasaw supported the French, the majority of Chickasaw remained allied to the British and were in conflict with French-allied groups, such as the Choctaw.Like the Chickasaw, Cherokee groups interacted with Anglo traders from Virginia and North and South Carolina in the late 17th century, although this relationship was slow to develop due to hostilities by Carolina traders towards Cherokee and their allied Savannah River Shawnee, Esaws, and Congarees (Ethridge 2010:151). The trade relationship between the Cherokee and British eventually developed into a dependency by the Cherokee on European goods, such as trade cloth, metal goods, weapons, and alcohol (Fogelson 2004:339).
South Carolina, formed in 1670, profited from trade with Native Americans for deerskins, pelts, and slaves in what would become Alabama (Atkins 1994:25). In the late 17th and early 18th centuries, the French also began to stake their interests in the Southeast and to trade with native groups, including the Choctaws, Natchez, and the Chickasaw (Barnes 2009:134). Both the British and French desired Chickasaw alliances for trade and military benefits, but the Chickasaw favored their relationship with the British over the French, trading.
