"While some anthropologists believe Chiaha was near present-day Chattanooga, Professor Charles Hudson (University of Georgia) and others have done extensive research and make a compelling argument for the location of Chiaha's main town on Zimmerman's Island. Although Zimmerman's Island is now under Douglas Lake, photos of it give clear indications that it matched the descriptions of Chiaha written by Spaniards more than 400 years ago. One, known as "the Gentleman of Elvas," wrote this when he accompanied de Soto to Chiaha in 1540:
"The town [Olimico] was isolated between the two arms of a river, and seated near one of them. Above it, at a distance of two crossbow shots, the water divided, and united a league below. The vale between , from side to side, was the width of a crossbow shot and in others two. The branches were very wide, and bothe were fordable: long their shores were very rich meadow lands having many maize fields.
The people of Chiaha were a band of Muskogean speakers, known as Coasati. Like the main town, the leader of the Chiaha was called "Olamico." A 30-foot-high mound, one of the largest ever found in East Tennessee, was located about 600 yards from the upper end of Zimmerman's Island. Most likely, Olamico was built around the mound. The Spaniards had high praise for the land near Chiaha: it was rich and broad, surrounded by beautiful rivers, where grapevines and persimmon trees grew in abundance. There were many small towns, just a few miles apart. They called the area tierra de angeles -- "a land of angels."
