Full Circle Living acknowledges the Muscogee Nation, whose land the FCL Office is located on. We pay respect to the tribes that occupied this land before us, cultivating their own society which they were forcibly removed from. We pay our respects to the stewardship by the Muscogee people of the land we currently occupy and recognize the significant history that is not often taught. 


Through our work in re-redistribution to Black Americans and American Indians, we keep the Muscogee Nation in mind, considering ways we can continue to learn, honor and contribute to current efforts in making amends after the years of oppression this tribe has faced. FCL is committed to learning the unbiased history of the land we inhabit, as well as encouraging our neighbors, family, community members, and other colleagues to do the same.


The Muscogee people were successful farmers and hunters who traded with other nations, adapting to the land which was suitable for growing cotton. As this was highly profitable land, American settlers began efforts to take this land for their own production. In the early 1700s, Muscogee delegates traveled to England to make peace with the colony of Georgia to retain their land and live amongst Americans.


In 1814 the Muscogee fought a war with the United States, known as the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, killing around 800 Muscogee warriors. The war and land loss due to treaties and the American Indian Removal Act changed the lives of the Muscogee people, and in their attempts to keep their land, they were driven out, including having their homesteads stolen from them.


23,000 Muscogee people were removed over 11 years, with 15 different groups traveling approximately 750 miles to what is now Oklahoma. Many died along this trek, from inclement weather, lack of food, inadequate shelter, and illness.
