This Uchee Anna was inhabited originally by:Ucheann Indians " They describe as Ucheann family. These Indians came for South Carolina and were known as Yuchi. This was the original name of the Indians in Eucheeann. We are talking late 1600's to late or early 1700's. Living near the Savannah River, Flint River, and Chatahootche rivers.
At the beginning of the Indian wars some ran with the Seminole, some to The Lower Musckogee Creeks of Georgia and some Were captured and taken to Oklahoma and still remain there today.

Needless to say being a non-profit organization these funds have not been available for a while, they do occasionally hold them in Oklahoma.
