—Creek Heritage Trail —Today there are federally recognized Creek tribal groups in Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama. The largest, the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, is based in the state of Oklahoma. The nation is comprised of the descendants of the Creeks who were removed from this area to Indian Territory in the 1830s. The Nation is governed by a Principal Chief and a legislative branch called the National Council, located in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. The Nation operates its own court system, police department health system, economic development offices, casinos, and a tribal college. It also operates museum and cultural preservation programs, whose missions are to preserve and interpret tribal history.
