I see questions about who to contact for information or participation in groups that support Native portrayals pretty regularly, so figured I’d start a list of those I know, and add to it as I could.
To start with, ’cause this is my site/blog, I will put in a plug for our organization: His Majesty’s Southern IndianDepartment http://southernindiandept.org/.
We specifically cover the lifespan of His Majesty’s Southern Indian Department, but participate in events that span a little before through the Rev. War officially, and our members cover a much wider range of time than that.
Here in the south, there are a few other groups. Forts Loudon and Toulouse have informal native groups that are part of their garrisons. Contact them via:
There are a couple of mixed native/military groups that have tried to start up here in the south, usually associated with ranger groups – the East Florida Rangers (defunct as far as I know) and the West Florida Rangers come to mind. I do not have contact info for either.
Farther north, I know of four formal groups that are native-centric:
The Woodland Confederacy: http://www.concentric.net/~rowenna/woodland/
Colonel Campbell’s Indian Department: http://www.csmid.com/indiandepartment.html
Allies of Oquaga Yahoo! Group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AlliesofOquaga/
If you would like to have your group listed here, please contact me via email or the comments below.
