Southeast Woodland Indians

The Indians of the Southeast were considered members of the Woodland Indians. About 4000 years ago, there were many different Southeast Woodland Indian tribes. Most tribes were farmers, hunters, and gatherers. They spoke different languages and dialects. Some knew each other. Some did not. The Southeast Woodland people believed in many gods and goddesses, deities to whom they prayed in song and dance for help and guidance. They had some very strange customs, and some very beautiful ones. Come meet the Seminole, Cherokee, Muscogee, Creek, Chickasaw, Choctaw, and more!
