National Geo Video: Excellent program on the Seminoles
What the program does not tell you is that most of the Seminoles’ ancestors were Itsate Creeks, living in the Southern Appalachians. The Seminoles still wear hats, turbans and long shirts that are almost identical to those worn by the Panoan Peoples of Eastern Peru. That is the reason that so many of the indigenous towns, mentioned by the chronicles of the De Soto and Pardo Expeditions, show up as divisions of the Seminole Alliance. Tamachichi was principal chief of the Itsate province around Ocmulgee National Monument until 1717. He stated that his ancestors first lived in southern Florida after crossing the ocean from the south. So ironically, many Seminole families are back into the land, where they first got started a thousand years ago. This is a one hour program, so you can watch it tonight instead of some reality TV show. I realize that many of you hate to give up seeing “Duck Dynasty,” but it is worth the sacrifice.
