This collection of five documents about the Creek cover a time span from approximately 1540 to the early twenty-first century. The two documents by Swanton are the primary works on Creek ethnography, and they deal with the traditional culture until 1912. Walker's secondary source material presents a concise summary of traditional Creek ethnography prior to their removal to Indian territory in Oklahoma by the United States government in 1836-1840s. Innes describes changes that took place in Creek society after their removal to Oklahoma, while Paredes, focusing on the Poarch Creek community in Alabama, discusses the fate of those Creek who chose to remain in the East following the removal of the major part of the tribe to Oklahoma. The Creek were a confederacy of tribes that emerged in the early eighteenth century in the southeastern United States, primarily in central Georgia and from the Atlantic coastal regions to central Alabama who spoke several related languages of the Muskogean language family. During the period of 1836-1840 a major portion of the Creek confederacy was removed from its homeland in the southeast and resettled in Indian Territory in Oklahoma.
