Natchez Kusso, Later Edisto
The Edisto Indians were originally known as the Natchez Kusso (Nah-chez Koo-so). The Natchez Kusso were a mixture of tribes. The Natchez first lived amongst the Cherokee. In the 1970s, the Natchez Kusso Tribe took the name "Edisto" in honor of the river central to the lives of their ancestors.
