We Come for Good

Today most people view the land base (and therefore area of interest) of the Seminole Tribe of Florida as the relatively small five reservations dotting the landscape of South Florida. This misleading demographic situation masks the sovereignty of a people who historically lived throughout a large portion of southeastern North America. Responsibilities for consultation with relevant agencies within the aboriginal, ancestral, and ceded lands of the Seminole Tribe of Florida is therefore no small task as this land base composes a large portion of nine individual modern states. With a staff of just two people who work back to back out of a single office, the compliance team must sift through the 99 percent of projects that do not impact sites of significance to the Tribe, in order to find the 1 percent that do.
