Modern by Tradition: Innovation and the Transformation of the Seminole Culture
Between the 1700s and today, the culture of the Florida Seminoles has remained remarkably connected to its roots, while also innovating in dramatic fashion, becoming both modern and traditional and reflected in their origin stories, dress, cuisine, housing, ceremonies, and family life. Andrew K. Frank is a specialist in the history of the Seminoles and other Indians of Florida. He is the Allen Morris Professor of History at Florida State University and an award-winning author and editor of many books and articles. His books include Before the Pioneers: Indians, Settlers, Slaves, and the Founding of Miami (2017) and The Seminole (The History and Culture of Native Americans) (2010). This program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Marco Island Historical Society.
Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
Date/time: January 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
