“The Poarch Band of Creek Indians: From Roots to Renewal”
Mobile, AL – The University of South Alabama Marx Library is pleased to present a new art exhibit entitled, “The Poarch Band of Creek Indians: From Roots to Renewal,” which will be on display from October 1 through November 30, 2017. The Poarch Band of Creek Indians, after many trials and tribulations, have created a renewal of their traditions and the tribe stands as testament to the value of hard work, education, persistence, and entrepreneurship. As part of the Alabama Bicentennial Celebration theme of “place,” this exhibit examines the roots of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians from the first populating of the continent to formation of the Creek Nation, and from wars with the United States to the formation of a place called Poarch. Geography and landscape shape who we are and this is evident in the people who are members of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. Despite humble beginnings and discrimination, including denial of access to education, the people of Poarch stood up for what is right, and through their own efforts, have established a strong and significant economic reach and impact today.
The exhibit is being shown in the Mary Elizabeth and Charles Bernard Rodning Gallery of Art on the third floor of the Marx Library. The exhibition is free and open to the public during regular Library hours. We hope you will come out and learn more about the only federally recognized Native American tribe in Alabama.
