In order for the Tribal Historic Preservation Office (THPO) to successfully represent the tribe it must be fully engaged with the community it serves. One way therefore to measure the impact of the program is to solicit feedback from the people themselves. Historically the Seminole Tribe of Florida is made up of speakers of two related but culturally distinct languages—Miccosukee and Creek. Language affiliation and cultural identity are intertwined and distinct. Today this traditional dichotomy is made more complex by the cultural and biological influence of non-Seminole peoples. Willie Johns offers a Creek historical perspective, from a respected elder who has a long history of working very closely with the THPO.
