The First Southerners: Creeks and Cherokees In Early Georgia
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Dr. Ben Steere of UWG’s Anthropology Department will present the program, The First Southerners: Creeks and Cherokees in Early Georgia on Wednesday, April 1, at 11:00 a.m. at the University of West Georgia’s Ingram Library. 
The Muscogee Creek and Cherokee are famously known as two of the "five civilized tribes" of the early nineteenth-century Southeastern United States, and both played important and active roles in Georgia's history. These two societies share common cultural traditions that date back thousands of years, but by the eighteenth century, the Muscogee Creek and Cherokee were strikingly different in significant ways.  Archaeological and historical research show that Creeks and Cherokees used very different strategies to adapt to the changing political and social landscape of early Georgia. This program is sponsored by Ingram Library’s Penelope Melson Society.  There is no admission fee and special public parking is being provided.  For further information, visit www.westga.edu/library or contact chendric@westga.edu or (678) 839-5337.
