Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar
This documentary looks at the North American Indian tribes that inhabited the Southeastern section of America, including modern-day Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, and Alabama. The tribes examined are the Choctaw, Cherokee, Creek, Chickasaw, and Seminole Indians, along with the smaller Powhatan, Sequoya, and Osceola Indian tribes. This video shows the history of all of these tribes, what conflicts they experienced, how they lived and survived, and how they interacted with other tribes in the Southeast States. The tribes of this area are known for speaking many different Indian languages because of their close proximity to other tribes and cultures. This closeness also led to the tribes sharing certain customs.
