Artwork of the Seminole tribe on view at Mennello

WHAT: The Mennello Museum of American Art pays tribute to Florida's Seminole tribe with its current exhibition "Art and Artifacts of the Seminole: Selections from the Collection of I.S.K. Reeves V and Sara W. Reeves."

The history of humans in Florida spans more than 10,000 years years — though the number of American Indian tribes significantly decreased following Ponce de Leon's voyage to Florida in 1513.

In the centuries that followed, survivors banded together, including the Seminole.

Amassed during 35 years, the Reeves collection includes clothing, dolls, jewelry and photographs that tell the story of the Seminole, described by early explorer William Bartram as "proud of their valor … haughty in their dealings with strangers … and arrogant in their fierce determination to rule their own land or die in the attempt."
