Learn about the intertwining histories, cultures, relationships of Black Indians and Native Americans and discover your own roots at the Muscogee Creek Indian Freedmen Band's History & Genetics Conference. This one-day conference at the Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library in Oklahoma City will feature scholarly presenters on the history and culture of Creek Freedmen, Seminole Freedmen and the Gullah Diaspora. 

Conference attendees can participate in a program called African Bloodlines, which traces ancestral, bio-cultural, and genetic linkages of chronic disease amongst African Americans and African American micro-ethnic groups. Spearheaded by the W. Montague Cobb Research Lab at Howard University, participants will receive free genetic testing for ancestry and health outcomes. 

Enjoy lunch, workshops and talks throughout this fascinating day full of history and culture.
