Hensci Mvskokvlke, I received a beautiful invitation to the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Inauguration ceremony of newly elected Principal Chief James Floyd, Second Chief Louis Hicks along with the 19th session of the National Council on Jan 2nd.....though I received this wonderful invitation this event is open to the public and is for ALL Mvskokvlke to attend if you so desire. I personally encourage you to bring your family out this event. It may be forgotten or unknown by our younger generation of Creeks that there was a time that the United States government didn't allow us to vote for our leaders. They took this right away when they ended the Old Creek Nation in 1907 as part of the Dawes Act...it was not until the Principal Chief Act was passed by Congress in 1970 that we gained our tribal voting rights back. So every election and inauguration is an historic and important event that should be respected and honored with grand ceremony......see you there....
