The Florida Ethnographic Collection
Artifacts of the Seminole and Miccosukee people include baskets, clothing, footwear, tools, cooking and food-processing implements, dolls, ball-game gear, musical instruments, silverwork, and photographs. The majority of these items were collected systematically by John Goggin in the 1940s and 1950s, to be used as a research and teaching collection. Many of the other items have been donated by relatives of people who lived and worked among the Seminole and Miccosukee in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Some items from this collection are on exhibit in the Hall of South Florida People and Environments.
