The Native Indian history across the country is vast, extensive and incredible important - not to mention fascinating. The Seminole Okalee Indian Village is actually located on the Hollywood Seminole Indian Reservation, and is a great way for kids to really learn about these incredible tribes and get a glimpse into the past - that happened right on the spot they are actually standing on!
There are a host of fun activities for the kids, as well as the whole family!
Fancy a wildlife night show? Just head on down every Saturday and enjoy learning about various animals and the roles they played on the lands!
Want to see some alligators wrestled with? Of course you do! Just as well they have the Deep Water Alligator Wrestling Show which offer photo ops with the animals! Big Cats, Snakes, Crocs, and Birds of Prey...do you dare!?
At the Seminole Okalee Indian Village, you can experience some incredible animals up close too - want to be face to face with the Florida Panthers, or a majestic black bear?
They also have a traditional village where you can experience the traditional way of life they wold have lived (and some still do!). From the way they cooked and lived, to their woodwork and doll-making skills - all in a "natural" setting so you can really imagine how it would have been.
How does it compare to your life? Do you think you could live like they do? Perhaps you might prefer it!
Enjoy the experience on their scheduled tours, or enjoy your own self-guided tour to work at your own pace!
