Muscogee (Creek) Nation

Educational Trunk and Lesson Plans

STEP has created educational trunks to assist classroom teachers in improving students' awareness and understanding of Native American and Muscogee culture. Each trunk contains Muscogee artifacts, Muscogee traditional attire, pre-removal turbans, pre-removal replica pottery, a Mvskoke dictionary, and bibliography resources provided by the Cultural Preservation Department, Mvskoke Language Program, and the Cultural Education Resource Council.


The trunks also include lesson plans aligned to the Oklahoma State Department of Education Academic Standards to help teachers with instructional methods and focus on the Muscogee culture.


Educational Trunks can be requested through the ACE grant.

To request the trunk, please visit and click on "Refer a Student" to request the trunk for a class, group, organization.

(Currently, only available to the 67 school districts within the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Reservation.)

Disclaimer: The contents of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Educational Trunk and the lesson plans were developed under a grant, S415A150008 from the Department of Education. However, those contents do not necessarily represent the policy of the Department of Education, and you should not assume endorsement by the Federal Government. Recognizing the complexity of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, the State/Tribal Education Partnership’s Cultural Education Resource Council (CERC) made the determination to use the information herein. This educational trunk can be used to educate students on Muscogee people and history as they relate to the current Oklahoma Academic Standards. The chosen information is not to diminish other aspects of our history or notable people, nor does it mean the information within this presentation is the primary source of knowledge. It does mean; however, that the CERC committee had to come to a consensus on what should be presented, and the compilation of this Muscogee (Creek) Nation educational trunk was a CERC committee decision.
