Ma-Chis Lower Creek Indian Tribe of Alabama (Ma-Chis Nation) citizens are remnants of the “Creek Confederacy” as European Explorers knew it at the first contact with white settlers during the European expansion into what is now the southeastern part of the United States of America. This area of America was inhabited by the Muskogee language speaking Native Americans and was also known as “friendlies” and, of the “Five Civilized Tribes”.

MEMO:  Step Up To Help The Ma-Chis Lower Creek Indian Tribe Of Alabama

FROM:  Chief James Wright

We have sent several emails requesting tribal citizens and friends of the Ma-Chis Tribe to sign and return support letters requesting the tribe to be able repetition for federal recognition. The sad thing I see we are getting a bigger response from friends of Ma-Chis than our own citizens. I see this playing like the farmer lawsuit everyone wants to get on board when checks started to be handed my answers were sorry can’t help you.

 

We must receive the signed letters if email by Saturday, July 2, 2022, at 5 PM.

 

If dropping off a hard copy at the office I request no later than noon July 2, 2022.

 

I have included the letter and the testimony that the tribe has prepared.  The testimony came from years of previous testimony, hearings, and documents from various federal agencies. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at machis@centurytel.net by text or call 334-449-0607 or 334-282-5092.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter
