— Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen Band is seeking the descendants of Creek citizens placed on the Creek Freedmen Roll from 1896 to 1915.

Its mission is to implement educational programs that depict the accurate history of the African-Creek Indian Freedmen and 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.

If your ancestors were on this roll, write P.O. Box 6366, Moore OK 73153 for eligibility information.
