Chicasaws, a North American nation, closely allied to the Choctaws, formerly occupying the plateaux along the east side of the Mississippi, between the Ohio and Yazoo affluents. They have now been removed to Indian Territory, where their reserve lies between the Canadian and Red rivers, north and south, towards the Texas frontier. Here they numbered 6,000 in 1872, and had a territory of about 4,000,000 acres, mostly cultivated. Like the Cherokees, they have a written constitution, and they still maintain the ancient alliance with the Choctaws, representatives of both nations meeting in a common generiel assembly. They support a large number of schools, and also send many students of both sexes to the colleges and universities of the United States.
