black history month - the black seminoles

I’ve always found the history of the black seminoles really interesting. In the 1700s, Spanish colonists declared that any African to escape from slavery would be allowed to live free in Florida. This led to many blacks integrating with local Indian tribes and merging cultures, languages, and traditions. The tribe has relocated to many different places including Mexico, Oaklahoma, and Texas, and members of the Black Seminoles are still around today practicing their traditions.
