Origin and History of
Various Indian Tribes
(By E. A. MacMlllan.)
Ada. April 11 —The .Muakogoo ln-
dtaoa originally Included nine dis-
tinct tribes, all speaking a similar
language. Tht-ir habitat extended
from the Ohio and Cumberland riv-
ers on th" north to the Kulf, and
from the Mississippi to the Atlantic
Practically all of those tribes have
become eitinct in Oklahoma. They
Include the Creeks, Choctaws. Chlrk-
ssawH, Seminoles, Koasaii. Yamacraw,
Apaiachia, Yamlsi and Alibamu.
Of the Alibamu there resides on
Deep Creek in the north central part
of the state about thirty members of
this tribe affiliated with the Creeks
They have been, since prehistoric
time, a sedentary people They held
peculiar views and among the
Creeks were • onsider. ci fanatical sn
much so that Intermarriage was not
common. They held to a peculiar
( nstom of flogging their children, a
custom practiced at their annual fes-
tival. The infliction of punishment
was believed to more deeply Impress
the wjung with the seriousness of
the festal oi caiion and that it made
them better tribesmen.
The Apallchi tribe ia entirely ex-
tinct, the last survivor having died
a few year* ago near Sapulpa. They
were more closely allied to the
Choctaws than to the Creeks. They
were agriculturist and were noted
for their Industry. DeSoto visited
them In 1639 and made his winter
headquarters with them, owing to
their aboundance of supplies.
Several Koastl are known to live
among the Creeks, and a number of
Creeks today trace lineage to this
tribe As a tribe they seem to have

been less stable than the Musko-
geans. They were of a lively dlspo-1
sitlon, less sedentary in their habits.
« nd their tribal life not so fully
known. Two settlements of the Ko-
asti Indians are in the state—one
near Eufaula and the second twelve
miles southwest of Sapulpa.
The Yamacraw, while considered
a distinct tribe, were in fact merely
a detached Creek clan. In early
time they were driven out of the
lower Creek country, owing to their
(riminal tendency. They wandered
many years and at last sought re-
instatement among their brothers.
Tradition states that they after re-
mained faithful to their brothers
and became one of the leading clans
of thf Creeks. Many Creeks today
claim lineage to the Yamacraw.
The Yamasee were a well-known
tribe, having figured prominently in
the early history of South Carolina.
They were warlike and in the strug-
gle of the colonists in South Caro-
lina were allies of the English. They
wero forced from the Palmetto state
and sought refuge in Florida, where
they were received with open arms
by the Spaniards, and remained their I
faithful allies ns long as the Span-
iards held Florida. When Florida
passed from under Spanish domina-
tion the Yamasee were driven into
the fastenesses of the Everglades
and being unaccustomed to miasmic
conditions they rapidly declined, so
much so that, when the Seminole
migration was made to Oklahoma
only twenty Yamasee were included.
Several had united with the Hitchita
but in every case their presence
tended to decimate the clan with
whom they united. The number—if
any now residing In Oklahoma is
unknown. Probably several Semin-
oles can trace lineage to the Yam-
Of the remaining tribes of the
Muskogeans, the Chickasaws, Choc-
taws, Creeks and Seminoles, the
general reader is conversant. Each
of these had several clan divisions
who greatly affected their tribal
lives. The blood of the Euchee had
a wonderful influence on the Creeks.
Contact—and in some cases inter-
marriage—with criminal negroes has
left Its impress on the Seminoles.
The Choctaws have added to the
progress of civilization and have
grown in numbers.
With the coming of statehood the
tribal life of the nine Muskogean
tribes ceased to exist. .
