Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drawing on archaeological evidence and often-neglected Spanish source material, The Invention of the Creek Nation, 1670and#8211;1763 explores the political history of the Creek Indians of Georgia and Alabama and the emergence of the Creek Nation during the colonial era in the American Southeast. In part a study of Creek foreign relations, this book examines the creation and application of the and#8220;neutralityand#8221; policyand#8212;defined here as the Coweta Resolution of 1718and#8212;for which the Creeks have long been famous, in an era marked by the imperial struggle for the American South.

Also a study of the culture of internal Creek politics, this work shows the persistence of a and#8220;traditionaland#8221; kinship-based political system in which town and clan affiliation remained supremely important. These traditions, coupled with political intrusions by the regionand#8217;s three European powers, promoted the spread of Creek factionalism and mitigated the development of a regional Creek Confederacy. But while traditions endured, the struggle to maintain territorial integrity against Britain also promoted political innovation. In this context the territorially defined Creek Nation emerged as a legal concept in the era of the French and Indian War, as imperial policies of an earlier era gave way to the territorial politics that marked the beginning of a new one.
