Seminole People of Florida: Survival and Success will be on display May 17 to August 18, 2013, at the Museum of Florida History in downtown Tallahassee. Museum admission and exhibit admission are free.
The Museum of Florida History worked with members of the Seminole Tribe, the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum, and other advisors to create a well-rounded exhibit. Seminole People of Florida: Survival and Success provides an insight into the rich Seminole history, culture, and artistic traditions from the mid–1850s to the present. More than ninety artifacts are featured, including several examples of patchwork clothing from the Museum’s collection of Seminole artifacts. Other artifacts include baskets, dolls, jewelry, utilitarian items, and more. Historic photographs, colorful graphics, and informative text panels help interpret the Seminoles’ way of life. The exhibit also includes artifacts on loan from the Seminole Tribe’s Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum, notably an early nineteenth-century bandolier bag and nine paintings by respected Seminole artist Noah Billie.
The Museum’s monthly programming during the exhibit features numerous scholars and authors discussing Seminole culture and history.
