Youtube . . . the towns of the Apalachicola Creeks in the 1700s
The Apalachicola People are the hybrid descendants of one of the most advanced indigenous civilizations north of Mexico. According to their migration legend, long ago, their ancestors landed in the vicinity of Savannah, GA after sailing from South America and mixed with the Uchee nearby then later with Muskogean immigrants. Although they gave their name to a major river in northwestern Florida, they did not move down into Florida until the mid-1700s. During the 1700s and early 1800s, their buildings were sheaved with vertical wooden planks. It is not clear how far back this architectural tradition reaches. An Apalachicola town near Pensacola, Florida was documented by explorer William Bartram in 1776. In 2008, the Perdido Bay Muskogee Creek Tribe of Pensacola, Florida hired me to create a model of an Apalachicola town near Perdido Bay that was visited and drawn by William Bartram in 1776.
