The explorers named them Creek after the Ocmulgee Creek near Macon Georiga.
The creek leaders wore formal feathers around their heads.
The Cherokee traded deerskin and other animal furs for knives, kettle, and guns from the colonists. The name Cherokee comes from a Muscogee word. The Cherokee were one of the most powerful tribes.
Both the Creek and Cherokee had their own languages and some people still speak those languages today.
