Daily Life in Olden Times
The Seminole Indians are a group that settled in what would become modern day Florida. When first the Spanish and then the French explorers and settlers arrived in Florida, they wanted the Seminole lands. There were wars. Some Seminole fled to the Everglades to live. They knew the white man would not want the land of the Everglades. It was too inhospitable. In time, the Seminole learned to love the Everglades. They found it rich with food and shelter.
