Tribal Directory Locations: Alabama

<p>Numerous Native American tribes inhabited the land that is now known as Alabama. Some of the most famous tribes included the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Shawnee, Yuchi, and Chickasaw. Still, many other tribes inhabited or migrated to Alabama to hunt or fish during the summer. Most of the tribes in Alabama followed similar cultural and lifestyle practices. For example, the Cherokee were known for building tools like knives and axes out of stone and wood. Additionally, tribes frequently wove baskets and made pottery for both artistic and practical purposes. These tribes primarily ate corn, beans, squash, deer, bear, and elk and used animal skin for clothing. Today, only one federally recognized tribe in Alabama exists; the Poarch Band of Creeks. </p>
