While this event IS free I am limited on my numbers because it is smaller. So PLEASE be sure you CAN make it when you sign up!
We will be getting a guided tour that lasts about an hour, and then you will have time to go through at a slower pace to look back over things when it is finished. They are also going to have the kids make medallions!

The Kerretv Cuko (Building of Learning) Poarch Creek Indians Museum and Gift Shop is the place to experience the history of our Tribe firsthand. Our exhibit showcases how our ancestors—the Muskogee Creek Indians—lived with samples of stoneware, pottery, tools, baskets, and textiles. See what early village life was like for families living and farming together.

The Poarch Creek Museum has examples of baskets produced in the traditional way along with other traditional forms of Creek art, including pottery, textiles, shellwork, copper tooling, and quilting. You’ll also see artifacts that are special to the Poarch Creek Indians specifically, such as original copies of the Petition for Federal Recognition submitted to the United States Department of the Interior in 1980.
