                              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.
