History of Seminole Indians
Seminoles are Indian tribe currently living in Florida, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Seminole Indians developed from the Creek Confederation of tribes in early 18th century and settled in Florida, at that time occupied by Spanish settlers. The tribe was joined by a number of other refugee Native Americans and black slaves. In Florida, Seminoles neighbored with Indian tribes speaking Mikasuki language and subsequently blended into one Indian people, named “Seminoles” which means “runaways”.
