Creek (Mvskoke)

Creek is a Muskogean language with about 4,700 speakers in the U.S. states of Oklahoma and Florida. It is spoken by the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, and the Seminole Tribe of Florida. The language is also known as Muskogee, Muscogee or Seminole.

Creek first appeared in writing in 1736. Laws were being written in Creek from 1849, and a standard alphabet, the 'National Alphabet', was adopted in 1853. By the 1870s newpaper articles in Creek were being published.

Gloss

All people, regardless of who they are, are born unenslaved (a descriptive synonym since there is no concept of "freedom"), their worthiness (dignity) and rightfulness (rights) are equal to any other person. They were given wisdom (reason) and conscience, in the spirit of brotherhood, should look upon one another accordingly.

Translation by Patrick Davis

Translation

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
