Description

This exhibit celebrates the state’s original inhabitants, beginning with the Mississippian peoples and continuing with their descendants, the Creeks and the Cherokees. Long before the first European settlers came to what is now called Georgia, the Mississippian Indians developed complex societies on these lands — complete with art, music, ceremony, agriculture, architecture and trade industries. The Creeks and Cherokees left landmarks and cultural legacies prior to their 1830s removal from the state on the Trail of Tears. This exhibit explores Indians’ recent history and their continuing connections to Georgia through the voices of contemporary Creeks and Cherokees.
