Red Sticks - A term applied by the white man to warriors of the Creek and Seminole Indians.  It was the custom of these tribes to erect tall red poles in the village public squares when war was declared.  These poles or "red sticks" were in charge of men known as "bearers of the red," and so the men themselves became known as "Red Sticks."
