Ojibway Indians of Florida
How, you may be asking, did the ojibway indians of florida get there? After the Ojibway defeated the Iroquois League in the first part of the devastating Beaver Wars (1667), they were driven by prophesy to invade towards the south, into what are now the States of Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. The whites refer to these southern Ojibways as Shawnee. We know the Shawnee are Chippewa. They speak Chippewa according to the 19th century book "History of the Ojebway Indians" by Ojibwa author Peter Jones. We also know the Yuchi Tribe are really Ojibway. According to Bartram, the Yuchi either spoke a dialect of Shawnee or spoke Shawnee. So they (the Shawnee) are not a distinct tribe but were Ojibways who were in the south to defend theirs, and their fellow Indian tribes homelands, against the invading whites. A little after the War of 1812 ended, the whites pursued the fleeing Ojibways, their black allies and Indian allies, down into Florida. After the first Seminole War ended the whites granted the Seminole a large Florida Reservation but a few years later stabbed them in the back, which led to the second Seminole War. Around 1819 the first Ojibways, their black allies and Indian allies, had constructed large boats to flee to the Bahamas (Andros Island) to escape from the whites. Below is a list of the Chippewa's who presently live in Florida. They are the Miccosukee and Seminole Peoples. Black Seminoles have a 50 acre Reservation at Fort Pierce Reservation.
