Description

Die Muskogee oder Creek-Indianer waren ein Volk, das im 18. Jahrhundert im Südosten Nordamerikas lebte. Ab 1734 betreuten von August Hermann Francke entsandte Pfarrer Salzburger Protestanten, die nach Georgia ausgewandert waren. Wahrscheinlich ist der Pfeifenkopf durch deren Kontakte zu den Indianern in die Kunst- und Naturalienkammer gelangt.
