Everglades Seminole Native Americans

Ancient Seminole Festivals:

Tribal Festivals: There were two big festivals held each year that were attended by all the clans.

  • One was the Corn Dance in June.

  • The other was the Hunting Dance in September.

Each festival lasted 3-4 days. People came from great distances to attend these festivals.

There was music, laughter, dance, and wonderful food. Gods were honored and thanked. And people from various clans visited with old friends and made new ones.

It was forbidden to marry someone from your own clan. The huge festivals were an opportunity to meet people, and develop friendships with other clans.
