Seminole Environment

The Adam-Onis Treaty gave Florida to the U.S. and the Seminoles lived in Florida.

The Seminoles lived in the swampy everglades of Florida. They were very dependent on a healthy ecosystem so that if their land dies, then the tribe does as well. That made them very protective of their water and land systems. The climate was hot, humid, rainy, and foggy. Since it was swampy, they had poor crops, shrinking numbers of fish and game, droughts, serious hurricanes and other calamities. They also had many animals like deer, birds, alligators, otters, and raccoons.

Treaty of Moultrie Creek required the Seminole to give up their land and move south.

Indian Removal act was to move all the Indians to land west of the Mississippi River.

Until the 1940’s, few Indians moved to reservations. Soon, many Seminole’s were forced onto reservations that are still here today. Since the land was swampy, they had poor crops, shrinking numbers of fish and game, droughts, serious hurricanes and other calamities. Not only to add that the climate was hot, humid, and foggy. Today, the Seminoles are used as a mascot for a college in Florida. Currently, the rainfall is low with an average of about 18.20 inches per year.
