Halito! My name is Leo 'Buddy' Pergson,

 Chief of Su-Quah-Natch-Ah Choctaw band of Kemper County Mississippi living along the Tombigbee River MS, Choctaw mounds or "Tomb Builders". 

I am your new Native American Project Coordinator for the Great State of Mississippi. Please email me with any comments, suggestions or contributions you might have for this site.  If I can be of assistance please contact me.  I have worked with the Bureau of Indian Affairs for many years and can sometimes find sources others cannot.
