Seminole Indians

Seminole Indians


The Seminole Indians lived mainly in Florida. Unlike other tribes that were organized along ancestral lines, the Seminole people were made up of various native tribes who were fleeing British colonial, and later American, oppression. The Seminole Indians were considered by the U.S. government as one of the Five Civilized Tribes, but the Seminole people fought hard against assimilation and removal. The Indians kept the American Army busy during the 19th century as they fought in the three Seminole Wars. By the end of the last Seminole War, thousands of Indians had been removed to Oklahoma and only a few remained in Florida, fighting for their freedom. These remaining Seminoles never surrendered and are the only Indian tribe to not negotiate a formal peace with the U.S. Today, Seminoles live in Oklahoma and Florida, but there are still many independent Seminoles who are not organized onto a reservation or tribal lands, showing that the unconquerable Seminole spirit continues to live on.
