Muscogee (Creek) Nation held marker dedication and flag raising

A delegation from the Muscogee (Creek) Nation joined Calhoun County officials May 15th for the unveiling of a historical marker in recognition of Apalachicola Tribal Town Mekko John Blount marking a significant milestone in the Muscogee (Creek) Nation’s cultural heritage and legacy in Florida. The marker will serve as testament to the resilience of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, forcefully removed from Florida on the Trail of Tears from present-day Blountstown, Florida.  The dedication of this historical marker and flag raising ceremony signifies the unwavering commitment of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation to preserve and commemorate its rich heritage, paying homage to those who came before and paving the way for future generations.
