Muskogee (Mvskoke, Maskoke, Muscogee, or Creek) is a living language spoken in Oklahoma and Florida. It was originally spoken in Alabama and Georgia. In the 1700s and early 1800s, some Muskogee speakers moved to Florida and became known as Seminoles. In the 1830s, most Muskogees and Seminoles were forced to move to Indian Territory.
Today Muskogee is spoken by several hundred citizens of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, and the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
This site began as a collaboration between Jack Martin at the College of William and Mary and the late Margaret Mauldin at the University of Oklahoma. That work has grown and benefited from the help of many more individuals.
