men often hunted game which ranged from spearing fish from a canoe,birds, deer , otters and even alligators for their meat.
The amount of beads worn by Seminole women was a phenomenon to all who saw them. Imagine the amount of stamina it took to conduct the daily tasks, which were alot more vigorous than sitting in front of a TV, while wearing 12 pounds of beads.
There are many "medicine" traditions concerning death, and numerous interpretations of those traditions. Some say a widow must wait four years to remarry.
seminole culture
• Seminole used war clubs and tomahawks during the skirmishes fought between tribes and with the early settlers. Both are striking weapons and best when used at short range. The tomahawk was originally a hatchet-like weapon with a stone head. Iron heads replaced stone as metalworking skills spread from tribe to tribe.
• The Seminoles used dugout canoes and push poles to navigate the swamps and waterways that surrounded their lands. The push pole moved the canoe along instead of paddles.
Abiaka (Sam Jones) lived through some of the most tumultuous and dangerous periods of Seminole life during the 19th century. He was a medicine man who looked after his people. There were a number of leaders like Osceola who were better known by the Europeans, but Abiaka played just as great a role by keeping the Seminole people together and surviving through wartime to peace times. It was his stubborn and fierce determination to stay in the Florida peninsula, which steeled the Seminole people to resistance. Every Seminole who still lives today in Florida owes this fact to Abiaka.
Seminole Leaders

Marriage between relatives was forbidden. You had to marry out of your clan.
