I chair the annual Indian Community Conference in Blountstown Florida annually. If you are a descendent of our historic community as described on our history section of this website please contact me and lets talk...we are on FB under the "The Apalachicola River Community of indians"...
works are available on Amazon, and local libraries and historical societies and some will be available at the events.
The Indians of North Florida: From Carolina to Florida, the Story of the Survival of a Distinct American Indian Community (2011) in the early 1800s, dozens of Siouan-speaking Cheraw families, including Catawbas and Lumbee’s, fled war and oppression in the Carolinas and migrated to Florida, just as native Apalachicola Creeks were migrating away. Being neither Black nor White, the Cheraw descendants were persecuted by the harsh “racial” dichotomy of the Jim Crow era and almost forgot their proud heritage. Today they have rediscovered their past. This is their story.
Belles of the Creek Nation (2015) Belles of The Creek Nation is an innovative and modern perspective investigating the problematic linkages between preservation of cultural heritage, maintaining cultural diversity, defining and establishing cultural citizenship, and ancient tribal rite of passage. It follows the descendants of the Hill family in both Florida and Oklahoma.
The Cherokee Paradox: Unexpected Ancestry at the Crossroads of Identity and Genetics (2016) Genetics has brought to light in stunning detail the origins, continual migrations, and intermixture of humanity as how our ancestors spread across the planet. The complexity of this story has taken many by surprise.
Indians of Alabama: Guide to the Indian Tribes of the Yellowhammer State (2016) Unknown too many outside of their small communities, there are still many Alabamians who identify as Native Americans and their tribal communities are thriving.
We Will Always Be Here: Native Peoples on Living and Thriving in the South (Anthology, 2016) The history of Native Americans in the U.S. South is a turbulent one, rife with conflict and inequality. This anthology gives voice to their struggle and triumph.
Redbone Chronicles (Anthology, 2016) the history, genealogy and origins of the people known as Redbone, the Redbone Heritage Foundation began publishing a collection of conference presentations, articles and essays and genealogies in the Redbone Chronicles, edited by Don C. Marler and Gary "Mishiho" Gabehart We have combined those here and updated the January 2007 issues.
