This chapter traces intermarriages between Scots and Indians and the families they established in the matrilineal indigenous societies of the American Southeast. It examines the roles played by Scots in the deerskin trade and in the British Indian department, and by their children in Creek and Cherokee history. It reconstructs the historic connections between Scots and Cherokees that endured after the Cherokees were forced west by US policies of Indian removal.

Keywords:   Intermarriage, Deerskin trade, Creek Indian, Cherokee Indians, Clans, Alexander McGillivray, John Ross, Indian Removal
