Hastened the near extinction of several coastal tribes . . ” The effects of this little-known war were felt for many years throughout the South. Because the Yamasee War was such an important event, there has been a great deal of speculation, both by contemporaries and historians, regarding the causes of the war. Governor Craven speculated that it was the Spanish at St. Augustine who encouraged the Yamasee to attack (Headlam 1928:228). On the other hand, one Virginia Council member placed the burden on “the Carolinians themselves, for their traders have so abused and so imposed upon the Indians in selling them goods at exorbitant prices, and receiving their peltry at very low rates” (Great Britain Public Record Of¤ce 1924:54).
First, it appears that power was shifting away from Ocute and toward Altamaha. During the mid-sixteenth century, as the de Soto accounts clearly indicate, Ocute was the paramount chiefdom, yet during the next one hundred ¤fty years Ocute is barely mentioned in the documents. It is also during this time that the region became known to the Spanish as La Tama, a term clearly derived from Altamaha. At the end of the sixteenth century we also begin seeing evidence that links the people of Tama with the Guale and Salchiches (Satuache/Sadketche) of the Georgia coast.
Although none of these early towns has been located, archaeological evidence from later Yamasee sites in northern Beaufort County indicates that the Yamasee lived in non-nucleated or “dispersed town” settlements. Households were spaced between 50 and 120 meters apart and each covered an area of between 30 and 60 meters in diameter (DePratter 1994; Fletcher and Harvey 2000; Green 1992; Southerlin 2000). This pattern is similar to that observed by Robert Sandford for the Edisto in 1666 (Salley 1911:91) and for late seventeenth-century Guale villages on St.
