Coweta is one of the four mother towns of the Muscogee people[1] along with Kasihta, Abihka, and Tuckabutche.[2]

Coweta was located in an area now in the modern state of Georgia, USA. It was a central trading city of the Lower Creeks. Members of the tribal town were also known as Caouitas or Caoüita.[2][p.391]

The Cherokee language name for all the Lower Creeks is Anikhawitha.[2][p.391]
