Osceola Natives

In the mid-1700s, large groups of Native Americans, primarily from Georgia, began to come into Florida, which was still owned by Spain. Many were displaced from war and were looking for a safe home. They would band together to form a new tribe, known as the Seminole Indian tribe. The Seminoles, meaning “separatists” or “runaways”, gained their name as a result of their decision to leave their other tribes and migrate to Florida.
