"The history of early Georgia is largely the history of the Creek Indians. For most of Georgia's colonial period, Creeks outnumbered both European colonists and enslaved Africans and occupied more land than these newcomers. Not until the 1760s did the Creeks become a minority population in Georgia. They ceded the balance of their lands to the new state in the 1800s." -- "Creek Indians" from the New Georgia Encyclopedia, http://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/nge/Article.jsp?id=h-579&sug=y (Accessed October 7, 2009)
The collection consists of three arrowheads and two scrapers of Creek Indian origin. All are from the Athens, Georgia vicinity.
