The first white man to meet Georgia’s native peoples was Dr. Henry Woodward, a surgeon and world traveler, who had joined the English colonists sailing to the area which would become the Carolina colonies. In 1670, Woodward journeyed far inland to the Indian village of Cofitachequi located between the lands of the Creeks and the Cherokees. One of their neighboring tribes, the Westo Indians (also known as the Rickahocans or Chichimecos), had settled on the Savannah River in 1660, which became known as the Westobou River.
