Seminole History and Culture Classes

Posted by Richard Ellwanger on 08/14/2019

Due to the popularity of our January-February sessions, the Seminole Nation Museum has approved hosting a second round of Seminole history and culture classes beginning Saturday, March 16, 2019.

The free classes, which are open to the public, will be conducted Saturdays at the museum and will run from March 16 through April 20.

The course will present the genesis of the Seminole people and their origins as Mvskoke mound builders. We will examine their evolution from one of the “Five Tribes” of the Southeast to a modern, federally-recognized Native government. The course will look at the unique culture and colorful history of the Seminole people and how, after almost two centuries of acculturation, they have retained their traditional life-ways in balance with contemporary American society.

This story of tragedy to triumph is Part One of a two-part series. The second course of classes are set for fall 2019.

Any interested individuals are invited to attend. Again, the class is free and open to the public. Due to a limited class size of twenty (20), registration is required. Please contact the museum at 405/257-5580 during business hours, or via e-mail at [email protected] to sign up.
