Muscogee (Creek) Nation citizen to deliver lecture on Feb. 6

John Beaver, Muscogee (Creek) Nation citizen and cultural expert, will deliver a public talk on Muscogee history on Tuesday, Feb.6, at 3 p.m. in the Caroline Marshall Draughon Lecture Room on the ground floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library. 

Beaver is a curator for the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Cultural Center and Archives Department where he manages the Creek Council House museum. The Creek Council House located in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, stands as a bridge from pre-removal Muscogee life in the North American southeast to a new life in Indian Territory. It is the place where present-day Muscogee (Creek) government was formally established and where Muscogee people founded the present-day city of Okmulgee in 1868.

The lecture is sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University. For more information, contact Mark Wilson at 334-844-6198 or
