Brief Profile

The Mikasuki Seminole, also known as the Miccosukee, are a federally recognized Native American people who reside in south Florida. They are one among two Seminole people, the other being the Muskogee Creek.

They occupy several reservations in southern Florida, collectively known as the Miccosukee Indian Reservation. The largest land section is a 333-acre reservation on the northern border of Everglades National Park, about 45 miles west of Miami. They operate their own police and court system plus have a clinic, day care center, senior center, Community Action Agency and an educational system. They also operate the 302-room Miccosukee Resort & Gaming hotel.

Their language, Miccosukee, is a Muskogean language that is still spoken by about 500 people. Miccosukee is very closely related to another Muskogean language, Hitchiti, and some linguists consider them dialects of a single Hitchiti-Mikasuki language.

Visit the Miccosukee Tribe or the official Miccosukee Tribe websites to learn more.
