TAHOCULLAKE INDIANS. Tahocullake (Hogologe, Tahogale, Tahogalewi, Tokogalgi) is the name used in Texas for a small group of Yuchi Indians who apparently accompanied the Cherokees to northeastern Texas in the early part of the nineteenth century. The Yuchis originally lived in eastern Tennessee but later also had settlements in Georgia and northern Florida. The few Tahocullakes who came to Texas were probably expelled along with the Cherokees in 1839. Yuchi Indians still live in Creek, Okmulgee, and Tulsa counties, Oklahoma, but it is not known if any of these are descendants of the Tahocullakes who lived so briefly in Texas.
