Old Florida Festival - Seminoles and Settlers

Last weekend the 27th Old Florida Festival was held on the campus of the
Collier County Museums in Naples.


Seminoles were a loose knit band of Native Americans, primarily Creek Indians and blacks. 
Seminoles in Florida engaged in a series of lengthy 19th century battles with the federal
government, resulting in many being resettled in Oklahoma in 1842.

Marvelous! I am normally shy of taking pictures of people but if they are in costume, I figure they don't mind.
