About Muskogee

Muskogee (Mvskoke, Maskoke, 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.
