Perdido Bay Tribe
of Southeastern Lower Muscogee Creek Indians

 

Members of the Perdido Bay Tribe honor their heritage by learning about their ancestors and sharing their history through art and education. Care of the environment is an integral part of their mission.

The Native Paths Cultural Heritage Museum and Environmental Education Center sits on 4.5 acres at the edge of Jones Swamp Preserve and serves as an environmental education center for many projects that will benefit students of all levels. The Tribe is working with others in the community to restore damage to the ecosystem caused by the oil spill, hurricanes, and years of abuse and neglect of the swampland.

The Swamp Ecosystem on the grounds, which was constructed by Escambia County, the greenhouse planned for the propagation of indigenous plants, and the wildlife attracted through migratory bird habitat development are examples of ways the center will serve the community and visitors for years to come.

The Tribe is both a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and a 509(a)2 public charity that welcomes donations to further their efforts. The Alcasalica Gift Shop features Indian style items, and a portion of its sales benefits the projects of the Tribe.
