Choctaw people are descendants of the Hopewell and Mississippian cultures that dominated the eastern regions of the Mississippi River Valley and its tributaries long before the arrival of European settlers. Choctaw people sided with the American cause during the American Revolution, favoring the bid of the Colonies for independence from the British Crown.
Although the Choctaw Nation never went to war with the United States, their people were forcibly removed west of the Mississippi River to Indian Territory during the early 19th century. As one of the first tribes to sign treaties giving their lands over to the US, the Choctaw negotiated for the largest and most desirable lands in the Indian Territory and were among the first major non-European ethnic groups granted citizenship in the United States.

On the obverse of the 2017 1 oz Proof Silver Mississippi Choctaw Water Moccasin Coin you’ll find the image of members of the Choctaw Nation. The Choctaw people have a modern population estimated around 160,000 living members as of 2005.
