The Savannah River Band of Euchee (Uchean) Indians is a "matriarchal," historically Recongnize by South Carolina Royal Colonial Government in 1750. Descendants of this tribe have lived in areas along the Savannah River since the early 1500s.
The Uchee were one of several ethnic groups in the old Apalache Kingdom.
The Uchee (Uchean) joined the Yamasee in an uprising in 1715. They were allies of the Yamasee in this war, but not part of the Yamasee Alliance. The Savannah River Uchees were Key players with villages on both sides of the Savannah River boardering South Carolina and Spanish Florida. Because colonial states wanted to preserve slavery, the State of Georgia was created. Our Ancestors raided nearby plantations freeing Indians and Africans from captivity and slavery.
History teaches little unknown facts about the underground railroad ran south to spanish florida instead of north as it is taught in history. The narrow channels of
Savannah River in the area of what is known today as Allendale county, made it very easy escape to freedom in spanish florida. The Euchee and various other tribes of the Confederation, battles were
against the South Carolina colonist and the Cherokees, which continued until 1821. Many members of the Savannah River Band migrated to Florida prior to the war, during the war, and after the
war. Ancestors and members of Savannah River Band have never been a part of the Creek Confederation.
The Uchee that fought among the Seminoles. Other tribal bands/clans members were captured and sold into slavery. Many Euchee young girls and woman were kidnap and raped by the European and Indian traders. As the result of being raped, many of them committed suicide. Those who were strong enough to bear the pain of being violated were forced into unwanted marriages to live a life of unhappiness and were made to journey to Oklahoma and various part of southern Florida--never to see their families again.
These European predators created clone tribes deeming themselves as chiefs and aligning themselves with rogue Indian nations where those imposters would sign treaties which they have no birthright to do. Other treaties were signed by half-breeds with European fathers who befriended old Andy Jackson for the sole purpose of self-greed.
The second or third imposter sold the indenity of the several bands or tribes of Yuchi nation to the creeks. This type of nonsense could never and will never be achieve in a True Matriachal Society. (Then again the Creeks may have realize that with all the spanish and european inbreeding from the fathers) they just as well be creeks. In Edward Cashin writings, From Creeks to Crackers tells a legendary story of history about mix breeding Respect is given always to the land and to the mothers of the land. When a nation remains true to its blood and soil. It remains Indigenious and Aborignal. Many are called Natives but few are Aborignal.
The American Indian do not discuss his or her European or African ancestors, because we have none. However; the Native American will tell you on his or her Scottish, German, Irish, British and Moorish born ancestory. Some even claim Jewish. Rightfully so for the Johnny come Lately Native American.
