Amalgamated Chiefs ceded ancestral Lands to the U.S. Federal Government:
The Creek Nation was once one of the largest and most powerful Indian groups in the Southeast. At their peak, the Creeks controlled millions of acres of land in the present-day states of Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. Much of this land, however, was lost or stolen as the federal government sought land for white settlement after the American Revolution. Creek lands were taken through cessions in treaties, through scams by land speculators, through outright theft by squatters, and also through clandestine arrangements between Creek headmen and federal agents. By 1836, most Creeks had relocated voluntarily or been forced to remove to Indian Territory, as the present-day state of Oklahoma was known at the time. This process of Indian removal has been inflicted upon all tribes like the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Seminole, Iroquois, Pequot, Powhatan, and Miami.
