The 'Chafunkta' name (pronounced Che-funk'-tuh) is derived from 'Tchefuncte,' which is itself derived from the Choctaw word 'Hachofakti, ' meaning a type of shrub oak tree that produced a small edible nut called 'chinquapin, ' which is similar to a chestnut. These trees once lined the banks of the Tchefuncte River, which forms part of the border between St. Tammany and Tangipahoa parishes.
