Ages before the very first Europeans arrived at what is known today as Georgia, the lands were occupied by the Mississippian Indians. These peoples along with their descendants, the Cherokees, and the Creeks have developed a highly complex and multifaceted society which came with their own art and traditions in many forms.

The Indians’ music, architecture, ceremonies, agricultural progress and the established trade industries had a huge impact on later life up to their removal from the state. The exhibition provides a close exploration of Indian’s legacy, history, and connections to Georgia that are still present through the influence of contemporary Creeks and Cherokees.
