The Cahokia (not to be confused with the unnamed prehistoric inhabitants of the Cahokia Mounds) were an Algonquian speaking Native American tribe and member of the Illinois Confederation. They were originally located in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and Arkansas, later removed to Kansas, and finally to present-day Oklahoma.

The Tamaroa were closely related to the Cahokia.

The Cahokia, along with the Michigamea were eventually absorbed by the Kaskaskia and finally the Peoria.
