Tuskaloosa (aka Tuskalusa, Tastaluca, Tuskaluza) was a paramount chief of a Mississippian group, the possible ancestors of the several southern Native American tribes (the Choctaw and Creek peoples), in what is now the U.S. state of Alabama. The modern-day city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is named for this Native American chief. He is famous for leading a battle against the Spanish conquistador Hernando de Soto. His name is of western Muskogean origin (taska, losa), meaning Black Warrior. He is described as being very tall and well built, with some of the chroniclers saying he stood a foot and a half taller than the Spaniards.
