Muskogee Creek Indian Tribe East of the Mississippi in Taylor County, Inc.
PRINCIPAL CHIEF: LOUIS "Running Deer" PARKER
Tribal Chief: Ann Cannon "One Who Smiles"
OAK HILL VILLAGE
We are the descendants and the followers of Chief William McIntosh
and all other Creek Indians who remained within the bounds of our
native territory after the Trail of Tears. However, our life has
not been without its grief and hardship. Many of our families from Georgia
and Alabama who managed to get to Florida had to all but give up
their proud heritage and identity. It is our intent and goal to seek renewed
unity with our lost and separated brothers, to regain our pride and dignity.
Our long range goal is to educate our children in the ways of
our ancestors, if it is not done then the struggle to retain self identity
will have been in Vain. We assemble ourselves so that we can teach the
unlearned and learn from the learned, this will preserve our heritage and
culture for future generations.
Our meetings are scheduled for the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from
April through October. The 2nd Saturday is our regular meeting which
convenes at 7 p.m, on the 4th Saturday is our Camp Day which starts at
10:00 a.m.. This day is set aside for Craft Activities and Cultural
Learning Classes and afterwards we have a covered dish dinner on the grounds.
Meetings November through March we only meet on the 2nd Saturday, which
we meet at 10:00 a.m. for scheduled activities. At 12:00 noon we
have a covered dish dinner and the meeting usually starts at 2:00 p.m.
