Prior to European settlement, the area that is now Jackson, was the site of the Choctaw Nation. The Choctaw Nation was a large group of indigenous people that predated the area by a few thousand years. The area they occupied was obtained the United States via the Treaty of Doak's Stand and completed in 1820. Once the treaty was enforced, Europeans began moving into the area.
The original agreement between the U.S and the Choctaw Nation called only for a small area of land to be ceded. However, by 1830, the U.S Government had convinced, and through a number of additional treaties and agreements, managed to extract all the people of the Choctaw Nation from the area and pushed them further west to Oklahoma, at that time called Indian Territory.
While most of the people moved to Indian Territory, a number of Choctaw members decided to leave Choctaw Nation, and citing the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek, became citizens of the United States. Descendants of those people now live across the State of Mississippi in various locations. The highest concentration of Choctaw people can now be found in the town of Choctaw, approximately 100 miles northeast of Jackson.
