In June of 1528 Cabeza de Vaca and the Spanish came to what is now known as Florida for the first of many trips. They came capturing the women and children along with one governor of the Seminole Tribe. The Seminole asked for their tribe member’s back. Spain gave them the women and children but not the governor. Spain responded by attacking and chasing the Indians across the swamps killing only one Indian. The Spanish attacked once again and only killed one Indian again. The Spanish fled to their boats escaping Florida. The Seminole had mounted their first of many defenses against European Settlers that would wreak havoc on The United States of America in the 19th century. Who are these light skinned people who come tour land They arrest our chief and take away our women and children We ask for our people back, and they gave us our women and children, but not our chief Then they attack us, not defeating us; they flee in terror, killing one man They say our land and our people are poor They attacked us once more but our strong warriors held up They fled to their ships and departed These light skinned men were foolish to try to push us around on our land They killed two of our tribe members and a Spanish commander in battle This poem was called Foolish White People and was inspired by Alvarez Nunez Cabeza de Vaca from Relation of Alvarez Nunez Cabeza de Vaca. Seminole is a word that means "wild" or "those who camp at distances." It is equal to the American word "frontiersman." The Seminole were a tribe that broke off from the Creek civilization of Georgia. The Seminole were from the southeast region of the United States. The tribe lived in houses called chickees (see drawing one) When white people came to colonize, as time went on, they referred to the Seminole tribe as part of the "Five Civilized Tribes." The other four tribes were the Choctaws, the Chickasaws, the Creek, and the Cherokee.
