Okmulgee is a city in Okmulgee County, Oklahoma, Unites States. The population was 13,022 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Okmulgee County. Okmulgee means boiling or bubbling water in the Creek language. The site was chosen because the Creeks believed that tornados would not strike here; they were right!
The present day Mound building, located at the tribal headquarters, houses the National Council Offices and Judicial Offices. In the 1990s, almost 100 years after the dark days of the allotment era, the Muscogee (Creek) people are actively engaged in the process of accepting and asserting the rights and responsibilities of a sovereign nation. As a culturally distinct people, the Muscogee are also aware of the necessity for knowing and understanding their extraordinary historical and cultural inheritance.
