Creek Indian Clans

Posted By Dennis Partridge On In Native American | No Comments

Many tribes have sub-tribes, bands, gens, clans and phratry.  Often very little information is known or they no longer exist.  We have included them here to provide more information about the tribes. The Creek clans follow, those marked with an asterisk being extinct; the final algi means ‘people':

  1. Ahalakalgi (Bog potato),
  2. Aktayatsalgi,
  3. Atchialgi (Maize),
  4. *Chukotalgi (toad). An extinct Creek clan, closely affiliated with the Toad or Sopaktalgi clan.
  5. Fusualgi (Bird), The Forest Bird (?) clan of the Creeks
  6. Halpadalgi (Alligator),
  7. *Hlahloalgi (Fish), An extinct Creek clan.
  8. Hutalgalgi (Wind), A principal Creek clan.
