Four Generations of Poarch Creek History
Martin, Karla Susanne
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The Poarch Band of Creek Indians are a segment of the original Creek Nation that avoided removal and remained in Alabama. This dissertation is a qualitative study designed to record oral histories of Poarch Creek people. Together the tribe and I collected and recorded oral histories from four generations of four Poarch Creek families. In addition, I did participant observations, analyzed documents, had informal conversations, and recorded field notes. All of this data helps us to understand more about family, community, education, religion, relationships, living situations, and many more aspects of Poarch Creeks from 1920 to 2011. Other stories were shared about the history of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians before, during, and after federal recognition. All of these stories teach us about how Poarch Creek identity has changed and been maintained over time. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
