About Creek

Creek (or Muskogee) is a living language spoken in Oklahoma and Florida. Creek was originally spoken in Alabama and Georgia. In the 1700s and early 1800s, some Creek speakers moved to Florida and became known as Seminoles. In the 1830s, most Creeks and Seminoles were forced to move to Indian Territory.

Today Creek is spoken by several thousand citizens of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, and the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
