native American,Creek tribe,potsherds,ancient,Florida, by 


These are some of the potsherds I have picked up after the rains in my neighborhood and on my street, before it was paved. The white “ball”, one of two, were used as cooking stones. I keep this collection in a woven willow basket.

The early Creek Indians lived here, close to Econfina and Bear Creeks.

The local Creeks belong to the Muskogee branch of the tribe, which if I am correct, extends up into Alabama.

    what a wonderful collectoin May! do you ever take photos of where you find them before picking them up? sadly, here in Kansas…hardly ANY records are made of native finds…..so much is left without memory.
    love to see all the patterns they used to imprint!

    I had a friend, a writer – Walt Larson – who lived in Kansas. He was a half-breed from Alaska. He was teaching at a college. He said there were many native Americans in KS and he really enjoyed the community. Maybe if you start scouring the local historical society for leads, you can find something.

    Thanks always for your nice words, Carla. I appreciate them.
