"Today starts another chapter in our history, as we continue down this path that our forefathers had planned for us. For this nation to survive with its traditions, culture, and language, it is incumbent for the Muscogee women to regain its strength and to inspire other women to step forward and say, 'Yes, I am a Muscogee Creek woman. I know who I am, I know where I've been and I know where I am going.'"
