Stiggins writes with firsthand knowledge of the tribes in the central southeastÂthe Alabamas, Natchez, Abekas, Uchees, and others. He tells of their origins, their towns and chiefs, and their way of life, he traces critical events leading to the Creek WarÂthe battles of Burnt Corn and Fort MimsÂand details the roles of the Indian leaders involved. In ÂTecumseh and the Age of Prophecy,â he describes how the powerful influence of prophets, such as Josiah Francis and Jim Boy, who incited the Creeks to civil war as the confederacy split into war and peace factions. Stigginâs account of William Weatherfordâs controversial role in the Creek War has special value because Weatherford was Stigginsâs brother-in-law. His descriptions of religious and social aspects of the Creek lifeways make this work prime source material.
William Wymanâs notes and introduction put the Stiggins account into historical perspective and trace its circuitous route to publication. First issued in 1989, Creek Indian History has become an important primary document for the study of Native American history and culture.
