In 2001 and 2002 I was working for the Poarch Band of Creek Indians in Wetumpka, Al. At that same time the Archeological / Historical Societies for the State of Alabama and two of the Alabama Univerities spent their time escavating all the grounds for the Poarch Band of Creek Indians so no building would be placed upon ancestors burial sites or sacred grounds. Not once in those two years did I ever see or hear of a Muscogee Creek coming to pay homage to their ancestors. WHY? Why didn't all this fuss come about when there was only doublewide trailers (the original Bingo Hall) on the property? Why was there never any ceremonies performed in those two years to honor the ancestors they are so concerned about now? It just sounds to me like they are using excuses because they are jealous of what the Poarch Band has accomplished for their people.
