Tullahassee Mission School

Education for Creek Freedmen

An August 14 blog by Angela Y. Walton-Raji discusses the establishment of schools for freedmen in Indian territory. She mentions the Evangel Mission in the Creek Nation, now the site of the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma, which displays the art, culture and history of the Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Cherokee and Seminole.

She also mentions the Tullahassee Mission School, which according to the Oklahoma Conference of Black Mayors (OCBM), was built by the Creek Nation in 1850, which increased the population of Creek freedmen in the area. “The council transferred the American Indian students to another school and gave Tullahassee to the freedmen on October 24, 1881,” reads the OCBM website

In her blog, Walton-Raji compiles a list of freedmen schools in the Creek Nation, which could help Creek freedmen with genealogical research.
