Seminole, a North American Indian tribe of Creek origin who speaks a Muskogean language. In the last half of the 18th century, migrants from the Creek towns of southern Georgia moved into northern Florida, the former territory of the Apalachee and Timucua. By about 1775 those migrants had begun to be known under the name Seminole, probably derived from the Creek word simanó-li, meaning “separatist,” or “runaway.” The name may also have derived from the Spanish cimarrón, “wild.”

The Seminoles located their new villages in the Everglades, a patchwork of dense thickets and wetlands that provided protective isolation from outsiders. There they were almost immediately joined by individuals who had escaped from slavery as well as by others attempting to avoid the bloody power struggles between European colonizers and other Southeast Indians.

They still live there...

En la última mitad del siglo XVIII, los migrantes de las ciudades del sur de Georgia del sur se mudaron al norte de Florida, el antiguo territorio del Apalachee y Timucua. En aproximadamente 1775, aquellos migrantes habían comenzado a ser conocidos bajo el nombre de Seminole, probablemente derivado de la palabra de la cala Simanó-Li, que significa “separatista” o “fugitivo”. El nombre también puede haber derivado del Cimarrón español, “Wild”.

Los seminoles ubicaban sus nuevas aldeas en los Everglades, un remiendo de densos matorrales y humedales que proporcionaban aislamiento de protección de los forasteros. Allí estaban casi inmediatamente unidos por personas que habían escapado de la esclavitud, así como por otros intentando evitar las luchas de poder sangriento entre los colonizadores europeos y otros indios del sudeste.
