Awards and honors
To the late Wilburn and Mary Hill, the late James Scott who walked the Trail of Tears, Chitto Harjo, and those Creek leaders who struggled for the survival of the Creek ways under very difficult circumstances. Fourfold thanks (mvto, mvto, mvto, mvto).
Due to the passing of my coauthor and life partner after the completion of the draft manuscript, this dedication is also to the loving memory of Jean Chaudhuri (Haya-atke/Hiyvtke, Ella Jean Hill). Per tradition her remains were buried in the same place as her umbilical cord after birth.
Vnokeckv, mvto.
First words
The Muscogee Creek people historially were one of the largest groups of aboriginals in North America before Columbus and before new European diseases and epidemics, battles for survival, and the forcible removal from Georgia, Florida, and Alabama to Oklahoma in the 1830s severely reduced their numbers. They were core participants and inheritors of the broad Mississippian culture and core creators of the southeastern cultural umbrella before Columbus. There is a considerable amount of literature about their conflicts with the Europeans and later Americans. The literature is stronger with respect to the external elements in summarizing their movements, locations, and the actions of the Europeans and considerably weaker in capturing their aboriginal percpective—the inner world of the Creeks.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0935626549, Paperback)

Designed for the scholar, the student, and the lay person interested in Native American history, A Sacred Path: The Way of the Muscogee Creeks attempts to convey Muscogee Creek values and views. It includes chapters addressing Creek concepts of nature, storytelling, genesis, the formation of society, gender relations, the system of decision-making and conflict resolution, religion, socioeconomic systems, and history. This book fills the gap in Creek scholarship by attempting to convey the Creek mindset as it has evolved throughout the centuries.
