"The first founder of Tulsa thus rests in an unknown grave near the center of the present city."  --Angie Debo, Tulsa: From Creek Town to Oil Capital 

When the Lochapoka were removed from their Alabama home, Chief Achee Yahola  led them to present-day Tulsa, and he guided them during the difficult years that followed removal.

Debo says that the name "Yahola" was given to young men who had won recognition in war.
