The Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas is a Federally recognized tribe of Alabama and Koasati in Polk County, Texas. These peoples are descended from members of the historic Muscogee or Creek Confederacy.
The Alabama who relocated to Texas supported Texas independence, and in gratitude, Sam Houston recommended the Texas purchase land for the tribe when their existing land was overtaken by settlers.
The current tribal lands are in eastern Polk County, Texas, where the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation has 18.484 km2 (7.137 sq mi) of land.
The 2000 census reported a resident population of 480 persons within the reservation.
