Freedmen seek descendants

The Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen Band is seeing descendants of Creek citizens placed on the roll from 1896 to 1915.

Those whose ancestors were on the Creek Freedman Roll, should contact the organization at www.1866creekfreedmen.com or write P.O. Box 6366 Moore, OK 73153.

The nonprofit aims to implement educational programs that depict the accurate history of the African-Creek Indian Freedmen, to educate members and the public regarding the African Creeks' political rights as citizens of the Creek Nation, defined by the Creek Treaty of 1866 (Article 2).
