Degadoga, (Cherokee, "Tatoka"), was an 1810 Cherokee emigrant to the Arkansaw area of the Louisiana Territory. He was the second Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation—West (from 1813 until 1817). Degadoga rose to the office of principal chief after the departure of his predecessor, The Bowl. The Bowl had been a past Chickamauga leader who had led Degadoga and several hundred followers into 'the west' to escape the influence and constant expansion of the United States.
