Brighton Reservation


It is one of several Seminole Reservations in Florida. However, unlike other Seminole Reservations in Florida, their language is of Creek origins and not Miccosukee. That alone suggests something is very wrong with this Brighton Reservation located in Glades County, Florida. Below is a map of Brighton Reservation and links to google earth photos of their town. Brighton Reservation covers 35,805 acres or 14,489.7 hectares. It is located 5.1 miles or 8.2 kilometers northwest of Lake Okeechobee. From Great Lakes region, Ojibway Nations military totem (Noka or Maka), forced their way southwards into northern Florida, after they successfully invaded a region east of Lake Superior. This happened in mid 16th century. Their main leader was chief Sagima. He led large numbers of Ojibway Soldiers and their families to islands in Lake Huron and Lake Michigan, from either a western location or southwestern location. They favored Manitoulin Island or Ghost's Island. From there, he sent large numbers of Ojibway Soldiers east, north and south. They were there to defend Indian land against whites. Those Ojibway Soldiers and their families that were sent south, eventually reached north Florida. They commenced to war upon Italian and Spanish invaders. In Florida, Ojibway People are known as Shawnee and Yuchi yet Seminole is possibly an Ojibway word. At first they fought Latin's or Italians and Spaniards, then they commenced to fight English invaders then American invaders. After a third war between Seminole People and Americans ended in May of 1858, very few Seminole People remained in Florida. Most fled to Caribbean Islands or South America, while many others relocated to Oklahoma. There were no Seminole Reservations in Florida after 1858.



Montana Ojibway's were forced to leave their vast Montana Reservation commencing around 1887. Relocations intensified in 1895-1896. One location American leaders selected to send Montana Ojibway's to was south Florida which was ideal because of it's wetlands. By early 20th century, these Montana Ojibway's led by chief Rocky Boy, were scattered throughout south Florida. Reservations were eventually set aside for them commencing in 1907, when Dania Reservation was set aside in that year. By 1913, there were 18 Seminole Reservations in Florida. It coincides with increased forced Relocations of Montana Ojibway's led by chief Rocky Boy. Seminole People of Florida have forgotten about these old events. Chief Rocky Boy never ceded Reservation nor did he ever surrender. In 1891, American leaders established an Indian Agency at Immokalee. They supposedly created a Reservation there covering one township or 36.0 sq. mi. or 93.2 sq. km. No Seminoles moved to their Reservation and they closed Immokalee Indian Agency in 1900. They wouldn't do that as a result of their policy. Several Reservations were located east of Lake Okeechobee in 1907 and after. During those times land east of Lake Okeechobee was not yet productive. By 1930, it had changed.



In 1934, American leaders prepared to force Ojibway's living in what is now Everglades National Park, to relocate. They selected an area near Miles City in Collier County, Florida (it's 17 miles or 27.4 kilometers south of Immokalee Reservation which means they reduced it's size) for a Reservation of 4 sections of land or 4.0 sq. mi. or 10.3 sq. km. They also selected an area near Brighton, Florida (it's 4.2 miles or 6.5 kilometers north of Brighton Reservation) for another Reservation of 4 sections of land or 4.0 sq. mi. or 10.3 sq. km. On March 20, 1935, Ojibway leaders met with American negotiators Harold Ickes and John Collier at West Palm Beach during a Sundance (eastern Indians did not know about Sundances which were very common in Montana and other plains States) about their 18 Reservations. According to historians they met to negotiate for new Reservations. They were really being forced to cede their 18 Reservations and leave their Everglades homes. Not according white historians however. They wrote their meeting was held specifically to find new Reservations. Thus, Brighton Reservation was created in 1935. By 1938 more land was added to it's 4 sections of land. Brighton Reservation now had a land area of 35,805 acres or 14,489.7 hectares. According to 2010's census, Brighton Reservation has a population of 694. Non Indians make up nearly 15% of Brighton Reservations population.
