The Miccosukee Tribe of Indians is a federally recognized tribe, approved by the Secretary of the Interior under the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934. The Miccosukee did not originally live in the Everglades, they were moved there after the arrival of Spanish settlers. They are currently in a court battle against the EPA in an attempt to increase the quality of water entering the Everglades near their reservation. I wish to research the Miccosukee Indians history and current struggles to preserve their tribe and culture.
