Traditional Culture of the Seminoles
The Seminoles of Florida are ancestrally related to the Creek people living in Georgia and Alabama. At the conclusion of the Seminole Wars in 1855, they were left in an uncertain peace in Florida. Here, they reestablished their lifestyle and adjusted their customs to their new circumstances. David Blackard, the Curator for the Seminole tribe’s museum, Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki gave a fully-illustrated presentation on how the Seminole lived, what they ate, how they dressed, precisely where they lived, how they interacted with each other and outsiders as well as what they believed and how this has changed during the 20th and 21st centuries in this fully illustrated presentation.
