Alibamu - 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.
