Composed mainly of groups from the former Georgia chiefdoms of Tama and Guale, the Yamasee lived for over thirty years with the Carolina colonists as their trading partners, as mercenaries, and as slave raiders. For most of their tenure in Carolina, the Yamasee were the colonists’ closest native allies; however, trader abuses, encroachment upon their land, mounting debt, and a fear of enslavement eventually turned these trusted allies into the colonists’ most bitter enemies. In 1989, Chester DePratter, William Green, and David McKivergan began the Yamasee Archaeological Project (DePratter and Green 1990; Green 1992; McKivergan 1991).

DePratter, and Bobby Southerlin As was typical of the Carolina traders, it did not take them long to forget that the Yamasee were their allies. On their return from St. Augustine, some of Moore’s soldiers stole hogs belonging to a Yamasee Indian (Salley 1934:48). In addition, on February 5, 1703, the Commons House of Assembly recorded a complaint that John Cochran, later killed by the Yamasee at Pocotaligo, “hath by pretended authority from the Governor, taken away from severall Yamasee Indians, the plunder which they had taken at St.

Helena and “Cosapue” raided the Timucuan mission of Santa Catalina de Afuica, killing eighteen men and women and capturing twenty-¤ve slaves who were taken back to Carolina (Hann 1990:472; Lanning 1935:220–22; Sainsbury 1928–1947, vol. 2:8–9). In addition, they ransacked the mission and carried away many of the church ornaments, some of which were later recovered by the Spanish from Governor Joseph Morton’s plantation on Edisto Island (Worth 1995:148–49). On the way back from Santa Catalina, the Yamasee stopped at their former village of Tama on Amelia Island to celebrate their victory.
