William Bailey of the Poarch community of Creek Indians

This show in a repeat from 2006 of William Bailey talking to ACTC Director Joey Brackner. 

The Poarch community of Creek Indians near Atmore is Alabama’s only federally recognized Native American tribe. For more than a decade, William Bailey has been instrumental in bringing Creek elders from Oklahoma to teach the language and to help reintroduce traditions that were no longer practiced in Alabama. The Creek language, a foundation of tribal culture, was the focus of early apprenticeship projects. William built on this effort, working with other tribal members to reestablish the stomp dance and traditional ceremonies in his community. He visited Oklahoma to work with Creek elders such as George Bunny and Sam Proctor, learning about medicinal herbs, making ball sticks and blow guns, and other traditional practices and teaching these skills through the Apprenticeship Program.
