Osten Interactive – Tribal History
Osten Interactive is a native-owned and operated corporation located in the state of Washington. Our tribal headquarters is located in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, the Mvskoke Creek Nation. We previously were incorporated under Osten Systems while operating in Nashville, Tennessee from 2006 – 08. In 2009 we decided to modify our name and business structure to more accurately match our offerings. The Muscogee (or Mvskoke ), also known as the Creek or Creeks, are an American Indian people originally from the southeastern United States. Mvskoke is their name in traditional spelling. Modern Muscogees live primarily in Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. Their language, Mvskoke, is a member of the Muscogee branch of the Muscogean language family. They were a part of the Mississippian culture which was located throughout the Mississippi River valley. The early Spanish explorers, according to historian Walter Williams, encountered their antecedents. In the 19th century, Muscogees were known as one of the “Five Civilized Tribes” because they had integrated numerous cultural and technological practices of their European American colonial neighbors.
In 1795, along with the Seminoles, William Bowles formed a short-lived state in northern Florida known as the State of Muskogee. The Muscogee would be the first Native Americans to be civilized under George Washington’s civilization plan. In 1811, the Shawnee leader Tecumseh, with the help of a prophetic comet and earthquake, convinced the Muscogee to resist the efforts of American civilization. The Red Stick War began as a civil war within the Muscogee Nation which would enmesh them in the War of 1812. After removal efforts, the Muscogee Nation would be moved to Oklahoma and the Poarch Band of Creek Indians would eventually be formed in Alabama.
