During her fieldwork in Eufaula, Oklahoma, where she documented Creek, Haas collected lexica of other Muskogean languages in an attempt to prove genetic relationships and reconstruct Proto-Muskogean. She collected Hitchiti vocabulary from Willie Haney amounting to a short field notebook and other loose papers. Derived from this work are comparisons and standalone ordered lexica in Series 2 and Series 9, often under the heading ‘Muskogean'. Additionally, Haas possessed 76 pages of Swanton's manuscript ‘A Sketch of the Hitchiti language' and discussed Ethel Cutler Freeman's fieldtrip to Big Cypress, Florida, found in Series 1. See also Mikasuki, considered to be mutually intelligible with Hitchiti.
