Until the late 18th century, when some Indians began adopting plantation slavery, there was little racism in the Creek Nation. By the early 19th century, however, relations between Indians and Africans were deteriorating. The Redstick War marked a turning point, after which many Indians concluded they could only survive by abiding by the South's racial hierarchy. Katy Grayson was one such Creek. Although she had had two children with an African man, she and her partner separated shortly after the war.
