Program Details

This presentation introduces audiences to a variety of Florida Seminole portraits from the nineteenth century and how the portraits were used as propaganda to represent the Seminoles as a dying people. “Seminole Portraits: Reflections Across Time” challenges this long-held belief to explore changing perspectives of Native Americans and the Florida Seminole. With a focus on portraiture over time, the rich history and continued vitality of the Florida  Seminole will be brought to life, including introductions to current Seminole artists throughout the state.
