Native Americans of Alabama
This entry was originally written by Robert S. Davis and Mary Bess Paluzzi for Red Book: American State, County, and Town Sources.
Census records have already been cited as resources. A sizable group of materials on native inhabitants who occupied Alabama’s land has been microfilmed through the National Archives (see page 11-12). Topics included are documents relating to the negotiation of ratified and unratified treaties (T494); Cherokee Indian Agency in Tennessee (M208), which concerns Alabama residents; and trading house rolls for the Creek and Choctaw (M4 and T500 respectively). The Family and Regional History Program, Wallace State College (see Archives, Libraries, and Societies) and the Anniston Public Library have extensive collections of materials for Native American research in the southeast.
