A Modern Day Tribe with Traditional Values

The Mvskokes were the largest , most important Indian group living in Alabama.  They called themselves "People of One Fire".  The English traders called them "Creeks" because there villages were built primarily along creeks and rivers.  In the early days, most of the villages were in Georgia.  With the arrival of the English colonist in 1730, the majority of the Mvskoke nation was forced to join their relatives who had taken residence in the "western wilderness", which would eventually become known as "Alabama", a name derived from the Alibamos Indians, the first Mvskoke tribe to populate the region.  The scattered Mvskoke villages were united in a loose Confederacy.  Each village was independent and made its own decisions.  In times of war, many villages united to defeat a common enemy.  Those who chose to fight were called "Red Sticks" and those who decided not to engage in war were know as "White Sticks".  The "Mico" or Chief was the most important person in the village.  Many villages classified all of their tribal Council as Lower Chief.  The Mico vowed to fight only for a just cause, and looked aftr the daily needs of his people.  Indian society took care of the widows, orphans and needy, and the elders were held in a place of honor and advised the Council on matterers of importance.

Current Activities

In addition to sponsoring several Indian education programs in the State of Alabama, we have several "on-going" projects which serve our Native American heritage, and provide influence in our surrounding communities. We have acquired almost twenty-five (25) acres of land and have constructed Tribal Office and our Ceremonial Square Ground.  We are in the process of finishing construction on our outdoor cooking arbor and outdoor showers /bathrooms, and an area for camping.  We are encouraging each family to choose an area for a family arbor.  Our long-range goals include construction of an "outdoor classroom".  We hold regular monthly meetings on our property in Pike County, Alabama.  We try to provide cultural and educational opportunities for all of our people and guest.  The Southeastern Mvskoke Nation is a 501-c3 non-profit organization and one of the nine (9) State recognized Indian Tribes.  We hold positions on the Alabama Indian Affairs Commission and the Alabama Inter-tribal Council.  For additional information, please feel free to contact us at:
