    Can you name the "Five Civilized Tribes"?

    During the early days of the British colonies  Anglo-Europeans of the colonial and early federal period  considered these tribes to be "civilized" according to their own world view.

    I love quiz shows. Cherokee (some of my ancestors); Chickasaw; Choctaw; Muscogee (Creek); and Seminole (three federally recognized nations today, with many in Oklahoma, and several independent groups).

      I think you would have have known anyway. You seem to be very knowledgeable on NA.  You must be, and should be, very proud of your heritage, Patty.

      Gosh, thanks. I studied NA for years in high school/university/afterward, but did not find out about myself for sure until I was about 36 -- I'm thrilled with it!

    Since Patty has already answered, I won't repeat it. I am Eastern Band Cherokee and whatever "Trail of Tears Cherokee" happened along. Mr. B's father was 3/4 Cherokee. My best friend is also Cherokee, and her husband was Choctaw. His family is fortunate enough to have kept tribal ties, so her children and grandchildren are tribal eligible. Many of us in the South are proud of our heritage from the five civilized tribes. It has been said that the Seminoles were made up of a variety of tribal members who were forced to survive in the Florida Everglades. I've met a Chickasaw or two, but I don't know anyone who is Creek or Seminole.
    I have a question Phyllis, anytime you ask a question, your first answer always appears in the "Best Answer" format. Is there a problem with the settings? (Not to criticize Patty's answer because it was correct.)

      Hi MizB.  not on every Q I ask. I usually give a thumbs up to all answers. The Qs I ask are interesting that people with the knowledge race here (LOL) AND I choose the first correct 1.  My great nephew is part Cherokee from the Eastern Band.

      I've noticed in on most I've viewed lately. What is your nephew's surname? My ancestors American names were Allen and Deaton.

      Then you will have to go back to earlier Qs to see.  Cook

    Google makes it hard to tell if someone really knows this off the top of their head or not. If you want to find four out of five of them today, look in Oklahoma. That's where President Andrew Jackson sent them. For the Seminoles, see Second Seminole War (1835-1842). It was America's first "Vietnam".

      Many who are familiar with Native American history do know the answer off the top of their head. Thanks, Old Empresario for commenting.
