In 1647, a group of Apalachee diplomats arrived at an Apalachee town somewhere between the Ochlockonee and Aucilla rivers in the present--day Florida panhandle. The diplomats, representing communities across Apalachee territory, settled in the town's council house where their hosts welcomed, fed, and lodged them. Soon the Apalachees were joined by Chisca delegates, representatives of a people who had relocated near Apalachee territory from present-day Tennessee. Bands of Chiscas had recently entered Apalachee territory to raid Apalachee towns. Now they met for peace negotiations. The Apalachee delegates present at this meeting saw promise in a friendship with their erstwhile enemies.
