In the 1700s, Europeans dubbed the Indians living in Florida the "Seminoles" - the "wild ones." Three wars were fought in the 1800s to remove the Indians from Florida, but the Seminoles survived - and never signed a peace treaty. The unconquered Seminoles adapted to life in the Everglades, eventually thriving in the modern world while preserving their cultural traditions. One of 48 episodes of our Untold Stories series on the history of Southwest Florida.
