Tomochichi, chief of the Yamacraw Indians was an important person of early Georgia history. He helped to create peaceful relations between the Georgia settlers and the Yamacraw Indians.
James Oglethorpe founded the Georgia Colony. He planned the colony as a haven for people who had been imprisoned for debt.
Known as Coosaponakeesa among the Creek Indians, Mary Musgrove served as a cultural liaison between colonial Georgia and her Native American community in the mid-eighteenth century. Musgrove took advantage of her biculturalism to protect Creek interests, maintain peace on the frontier, and expand her business as a trader. As Pocahontas was to the Jamestown colony and Sacagawea was to the Lewis and Clark expedition, so was Musgrove to the burgeoning Georgia colony.
