List of resources:
1."Florida's Indians From Ancient Times to the Present" by Jerald T. Milanich
University Press of Florida, 1998
2."Twelve on the River St. Johns" by Charles E. Bennett
University of North Florida Press, 1989
3."The Enduring Seminoles:from alligator wrestling to ecotourism" by

In my paper, I'll descibe how the Seminole Indians have survived through their awareness of identity and pride in their freedom in spite of a tragic past that devastated their traditional way of life due to the invasions by Americans and Europeans. I think this is an important subject in that it is survival of humanity. The appreciation and protection of indigenous people are important aspects of environmental education.
