Spirit of the Trees: Natural Harmony

The Seminole Nation is made up of remnants of a number of southeastern tribes and escaped slaves who fled to the Florida Everglades and its virgin forests, cypress swamps and rivers of grass. The natural harmony they developed with the Everglades ecosystem ultimately ensured their survival, and today they thrive as the 'unconquered Seminole Nation.' This segment shares their journey into the 21st century through stories, photos, traditions and current efforts to preserve cultural knowledge and natural harmony with the land.
