Brandon Rios Proud To Be Half Native American

In this video we talk to boxing star Brandon Rios and his Native American roots being part of the Alabama tribe.

As you could guess from their name, the Alabamas are original residents of Alabama. The tribe was forced to move further west in the 18th century, and today most Alabamas live in Texas (sharing a reservation with the Coushattas) and in Oklahoma (sharing a reservation with the Creeks.) Other Alabama people joined the Seminoles and were absorbed into that powerful Florida tribe, and some live in Louisiana with the Coushattas there. The total population of Alabama Indians is about 2000.
