Chapters: Tecumseh, Pushmataha, Winamac, John Norton, Apuckshunubbee, Tenskwatawa, Thomas Davis, John Brant, Governor Blacksnake, Wanata, Stone Eater, Wapasha Ii. Excerpt: Main article: Choctaw Apuckshunubbee Apuckshunubbee (c. 1740 October 18, 1824) was a principal chief of the Choctaw Native American tribe.
