Shown here a Chief Calvin W. McGhee, Medicine Man McGhee, sub-chief Thundercloud, Brave Nighthawk, Princess Morning Star, with maidens Silver Moon and Evening Stars. The Creek (Muscogee) Indians of Alabama live on a land grant given their ancestors by Gen. Andrew Jackson. Lynn McGhee, a part-Indian scout, saved Gen. Jackson's life at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814, when Jackson took the land of the friendly Creeks who had fought with him against the "Red Sticks" or hostile Creeks. The land grant is to be theirs "as long as the grass groweth and the water runneth". The Eastern Band of the Creek Indian nation has two colorful ceremonial dance groups
