What is Yat Kitischee

Yat Kitischee (pronounced yot ka-tí-shee) means “red people” in the Muskogee language. The name was suggested by Native Americans who were involved in protecting the site from vandals. Originally, Yat Kitischee was named “Moog Midden” after an electronics plant that was located nearby. The Board of County Commissioners changed the name to honor the native peoples who lived and were buried at the site.
