- Indians of the Creek Confederacy who formerly lived in southern Alabama.
The state received its name from these Indians. The Alibmu fought
against early white aggression. While relations became more friendly
later, nevertheless they threw away everything left at a meal at which
a white man had eaten, and washed everything he had used. They had
a strange custom of flogging all their boys and girls during their festival
season after which they were lectured by one or more of the older men.
A few Alibamu still live in Oklahoma, and there is a small settlement of
them in Polk County, Texas.
