That would be very interesting to read about. Unfortunately, I don't know of any such Creek texts at the moment.

I found a couple books:
Creek Religion and Medicine
A Sacred Path: The Way of the Muskogee Creeks

I wish they were at my library!

The lexicon mainly- how some forms in Creek are so dissimilar from the others. (I made a comparative list of all the Muskogean languages with Houma vocab)

Oh? I didn't know about that. That's kinda interesting. Did you post the list somewhere?

I had put it together just for myself, so I didn't source all of it (I'm going back and beginning to cite everything). And it only lists the terms I had Houma words for, so it's not by any means an exhaustive set of comparative data.

Wow, sweet! Thanks for sharing! I've only just now glanced at it, but I see in some of the words what you're talking about.
