Florida Folksong – Departure Of Seminole Indians From Florida For Oklahoma

Seminole Indians vocals Ethnography Music Seminole Indian songs Brighton Indian Day School Seminole Indian Reservation Glades County, Florida

This is a song about the departure of Seminole Indians from Florida for Oklahoma. It is sung by Katie Smith and Courtney Parker. All of these songs were recorded at the Brighton Indian Day School, Brighton, Florida. In 1830, U.S. Congress passed the Indian Removal Act, forcing Native Americans to move west of the Mississippi River. All but a few hundred Florida Seminoles took the forced march along the "Trail of Tears" out of Florida toward Oklahoma's Indian Territory. The sound quality of this recording is extremely poor. It has been included online because the melody line can still be identified.

Language: Creek
Duration: 3 Minutes, 20 Seconds
