    Default Muskogee Translations

    Do we have anyone in the forum that speaks Muskogee? Or can point me in the right direction of someone that does?

    ¡Hola!

    Aprendí que es una lengua amerindia hablada por la Nación Maskoki en Florida y Oklahoma. Solo hablan esta lengua 4300 personas, así que será difícil dar con algún traductor fuera de esas regiones.

    There is a city in the States with that name... although it doesn't seem to be any connection with the language.

    "There is a city in the States with that name.."

    Yes, Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA.

    Hence, my bad joke. "I'm Proud to be an Okie from Muskogee" was a patriotic song that was very popular in the 1970s during the Vietnam War. It was sung by the late country singer Merle Haggard.


    There is also a tribe of native American Indians who live in Oklahoma. They are the Muscogee (NOTE: spelled with a C)

    The Muscogee language (Mvskoke in Muscogee), also known as Creek, Seminole, Maskókî or Muskogee, is a Muskogean language spoken by Muscogee (Creek) and Seminole people, primarily in the U.S. states of Oklahoma and Florida.

    Muchas de las ciudades del sudeste de EEUU tienen nombres de origen muskogeanos.
    Tallahasee (FL) es, tal vez, la más importante; pero también existe una ciudad y un condado llamados "Muskogee" en Oklahoma

    Arbacoochee, from the Muskogean word "abihkuchi" (a pile at the base)

    Chattahoochee River, from
    the Muskogean words "chato" (rock) and "huchi" (marked)

    Conecuh County and River, from the Muskogean words "koha" (canabrake) and "anaka" (near) or also from "kono" (skunk) and "ekv" (its head)

    Kahatchie, from the Muskogean words "koha hachi" (cane creek)
