Craig Womack’s class, titled “Native American Literature,” is specifically focused on the language and stories of the Creek, the Native American people that call much of the area that now constitutes Alabama and Georgia their tribal homelands. To introduce those at Emory to the Native American language and stories that sit in relation to the campus and its history, Womack videoconferences to the tribe’s relocation home in Oklahoma. In Okmulgee, leading the discussion with the tribe, are Ted Isham, linguist and curator of the Creek Council House Museum, and Rosemary McCombs Maxey, educator, minister and Creek writer. Isham describes the course as a “reintroduction, or a reinvestigation, so to speak, of our Native homelands, which are in the Southeast, centered around Atlanta, Georgia.”
