    The Five Civilized Tribes of the Southeast Woodlands: The Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Seminole. The nations rapidly assimilated white culture, raised stock, operated large farms, traded extensively with whites, adopted Christianity, owned Black slaves, and were educated at mission schools.
