Everglades Seminole Native Americans
Kids & Toys

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.

Pets: Tame otters, birds

Dolls: 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.
