The Mocama Indians: Archaeology of the Maritime Timucua
The maritime or Mocama dialect of the Timucuan language was spoken by Native Americans along the Atlantic coast of northern Florida and southern Georgia. These coastal Indians bore the brunt of European colonization in the 1560s and became part of Spain’s Catholic mission system in 1587. This presentation discusses the Mocama Indians and reviews excavations by the University of North Florida’s at Mocama Indian villages and missions.
