Rocky Boy Tribe
Chippewa Indians of
Miccosukee Indian Village, Florida
It is actually located some 15 miles south of the Big Cypress-Miccosukee Reservation. I am not certain what the population of Miccosukee Indian Village is but using google earth i counted around 160 housing units. If the settlement has 160 or more housing units the population should be between 400 and 600. I have no idea what the racial data for Miccosukee Indian Village is but Indians make up the majority of the population of Miccosukee Indian Village. The settlement has one road only for some reason. It could be because of annual flooding or some other reason. A canal is located on the north part of the settlement. It is being used to drain marshes and swamps to the north and northwest. A few google earth pictures of the region north of the settlement and the draining of the marshes and swamps, are below. The canals lead to the Atlantic Ocean.
The south Florida winters are getting colder as a result of the draining of south Florida's marshes and swamps. North Florida's marshes and swamps have nearly been eliminated. We can expect the winter climate of south Florida to cool off a few more degrees within the next 5 to 6 decades. Between 1910 and 1940, south Florida locations like Everglades City and Homestead, had January maximum high temperatures of 78 degrees. Homestead has a January maximum high of 75 now. Since Homestead and, of course, Everglades City are located closer to the oceans, it indicates the further inland one goes the high temperatures are warmer by a few degrees.
The current average January maximum high at the Big Cypress weather station is 78 degrees. It even currently averages 78 degrees at the Royal Palm Ranger Station in January. Royal Palm Ranger Station is located 10 miles south west of Homestead but it is further inland than Homestead. That is an indication that locations in south Florida like Big Cypress and Royal Palm Ranger Station, should have average January maximum high temperatures of 80 degrees or warmer. It is no longer tropical in south Florida. Within the next 50 to 100 years, the average January highs at Big Cypress, Royal Palm, and the rest of the interior of south Florida, will be around 74 or 75. That's if they continue to drain south Florida's marshes and swamps. And the whites will eventually do that. Possibly even the Everglades.
