Seminole Kids: Kids
played quietly. They each had a little box that was exclusively
theirs. It was filled with their treasures - a shell rattle, a
small ball, a favorite doll.
When they were not playing with their
toys, they put their toys neatly away, and hung their little toy box
from the rafters to keep it safe.
As the Seminole moved from camp
to camp, the kids could easily take their treasure box with them.
It was their responsibility to do so.
Tame otters, birds
The Seminole were excellent woodcarvers. They made
many things out of wood like homes and canoes. They also made strange and attractive
dolls. Their dolls were carved, but they looked as if you had pulled
them, like taffy. Seminole artists still make these dolls today.
