Seminole History

The name Seminole is derived from the Spanish word Cimarron meaning wild men. In the 1770s this name was given to the Indians who ran away from slavery from the British-controlled northern colonies. They worked hard to become economically independent. The Seminoles experienced a series of wars from 1817 to 1858 as the white settlers wanted to get back their former slaves and the Indian land. It was in the late 1950s that the Seminole tribe adopted a constitutional form of government and on July 21, 1957 the Seminole Tribe of Florida was officially recognized.
