Koasati Language Project
Aliilamo haslak / We’re glad you’ve come
This site is dedicated to preserving and promoting the Koasati (Coushatta) language of Louisiana. It is a collaboration among the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana and faculty at McNeese State University and the College of William and Mary.
Koasati is a living language spoken by about 200 members of the Coushatta Tribe in Allen Parish, Louisiana, just north of Elton.
Koasati belongs to a family of languages called the Muskogean family. The other members of the family are Choctaw, Chickasaw, Alabama, Apalachee, Mikasuki (Hitchiti), and Creek (Muskogee).
