From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Tamaroa were a Native American tribe in the upper Mississippi River valley of North America, and a member of the Illiniwek or Illinois Confederacy of twelve to thirteen tribes.

An Algonquian-speaking group, like the rest of the Illiniwek, they lived on both sides of the Mississippi River, in the area of the confluence with the Illinois and Missouri rivers.

Two leaders of the Tamaroa signed the treaty of 1818, by which the Illiniwek tribe ceded about half of the present state of Illinois to the United States. Descendants of the tribe later merged with other tribes of the Illiniwek. As a consequence of Indian removal in the 1830s, their descendants are to be found mostly in Oklahoma, as the Confederated Peoria Tribe.
