Are these ladies Machis Creeks from Southeast Alabama?
Nope! They are Machis from the Andes. They speak a language that has loaned several words to Muskogee-Creek.
Machis means “Wise Man” or “Wise Woman” in several languages of Andean Region.
Here is something else interesting. A war captain or “axe bearer” in the Andes was called a Tokee or Toque. That word is also the name of an ethnic group, who founded the Creek Confederacy town of Tuckabatchee (Tokipa-si).
Are you beginning to see a South American connection?
