In the 1830s, the Muscogee (Creek) people were removed,
like so many others, from their ancestral home in Alabama and other
southern states to Indian Territory where they made a home out of
necessity. The Trail of Tears may have ended where Tulsa was founded,
but the tribal government, art, language, and scholarship of the
Muscogee people continue.
This month, Justin Giles, former director of the Muscogee
(Creek) Nation Cultural Center & Archives Department, will discuss
the history, culture, and enduring spirit of the Native Americans who
first called the land of Alabama home.
