Georgia Tribes

Lower Muskogee creek tribe

The Lower Muskogee Creek Tribe is a remnant of the Original Muskogee Creek Confederacy, known as Creek Nation. We have three Treaties with the Colony of Georgia and 11 Treaties with the United States Government. After the Treaty of 1814, Andrew Jackson made the entire Creek Nation pay the cost of the Red Stick War by ceding lands of Southwest Georgia and Alabama. The United States Court of Claim ruled that this Treaty was made with the entire Muskogee Creek Nation, so the Land Payments of Docket 21 was paid to all descendants.

Georgia Tribe of Eastern Cherokee

The GEORGIA TRIBE OF EASTERN CHEROKEE consists of descendants of the Cherokee in the Dahlonega area who managed to escape the infamous Trail of Tears.  “The Trail of Tears” characterized the forceful removal of their tribe in the 1830s, by U.S. Soldiers who herded them into the Oklahoma Territory.  Our Tribal members have lineage which is documented on the Guion Miller Roll of 1909.  The direct descendants of all original tribal members are eligible for membership with supporting documents (i.e. birth and death certificates).
