A controversy has erupted between the Poarch Band of Creek Indians and the Muscogee (Creek) Nation over Poarch’s plan to expand the Wind Creek Casino Wetumpka at Hickory Ground in Alabama—a historic Muscogee (Creek) Nation tribal town and an established archeological site that includes a sacred burial ground of Muscogee ancestors. This video produced by Sterlin Harjo titled Back to Nature – The Battle For Hickory Ground highlights the issues the Muscogee (Creek) Nation have with the expansion through voices of tribal chief George Thompson and tribal members referred to as warriors.

This is very disturbing and goes to show how certain groups, clans, etc in the Native Americans are looking out only for themselves and could care less about heritage, theirs or any other tribes. Some only see dollar signs and how much will I get attitude. There is one thing that the African A. people have over all of us (N.A.s), UNITY and until that time comes when we N.A.s all come together for our common cause we will never gain total respect of anyone. I would love to see this happen before I go to meet the Great Spirit but I am getting old and grey and don't think that I will live long enough to see this happen.
