      It dosen’t with your guard down….

    2. That was a whole lot nicer than any Auburn-Alabama game, huh?

    There was always a peace pipe involved in a pow-wow to settle disputes and in order for us to adopt the Indian practice of settling disputes, the government would first have to legalize the herb that was put into the pipe!

    1. I was actually referring to the game that was played in the story.

    Just want to say…if any “people” deserve something…..it’s the Native American….they have my respect!! After all…..this was their land that was taken away from them and their way of life…they were here first….civilization came later…and they suffered loss. Did they fight back..yes…for their homeland …..maybe , today, we could take note of that…..

      the indians were the peaceable people..they only fought back after they were attacked….people now have the right to defend their property.that is all the indians ever did,,,,yet they were villianized and murdered for it…

    My Heart will always belong to the Native Americans.

  5. The Treaty of 1805 was not legally ceded to the United States.

    President Jefferson performed what should be recorded as the first Pocket Veto.

    There were a lot of things shady and unconstitutional about this specific treaty.

    The first thing was jurisdiction the United States by several Treaties and by the Law of Nations, Humanity, and Nature could not legally, morally, or ethically Treaty with an aboriginal Native people for lands or territories that were held or claimed by another European Government.

    This land was firmly claimed by Spain and even President Jeffersonn admitted it himself on his own way out of the Presidency of the United States.

    There are more reasons why. Lots more reasons and it gets very intriguing what the United States would do to steal land from a weaker people when the United States had the obvious and clear upper hand.

    Suffice to say, if you live in the area covered by this Treaty you are legally still living in the Choctaw Nation.

  6. I’m enjoying this Alabama history! A fact that intrigues me about the Muskogee (Creek) Nation: Talladega (Border Town)County had more Creek villages and towns than most any other part of the large Muskogee nation. The Creeks were a powerful, dominant, warlike tribe—but my hometown, Sylacauga (Mulberry Tree), was Shawnee; on Tallaseehatchee Creek (Old Town Creek) near my home, was a village of Natchez Indians, who had fled from Mississippi to escape the French; a few miles back up this same creek was the town of Abacoochee, (Little Abaka) reported by the botanical explorer William Bartram as speaking Chickasaw. Four tribes in one county, Creek, Shawnee, Chickasaw, and Natchez. Maybe our Creeks were nicer than we thought!

      No Sir!! The Choctaw Nation ranged from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

      My Family and Tribe are in McIntosh Alabama. I can trace my family back to 1760, but we have been there for thousands of years.

      I also wanted to add that our DNA is unique. I am Native and White and had my DNA checked

      Jim Running Creek Stevenson “But the artifacts at Cactus Hill dated back to 16,000 B.C. What’s more, stone spear points found at the site are reminiscent of those made by a Stone Age culture in southwest France, called the Solutreans, that ended 18,000 years ago.
      Archaeologist Dennis Stanford has suggested that the first Americans were actually the Solutreans, who crossed the Atlantic in boats similar to ones used by Arctic Eskimos. According to this controversial idea, the Solutreans were among the first New World explorers and may have been the ancestors of another ancient American culture, the Clovis people, who lived about 13,000 years ago.”
