Seminole and Seminole Negro: Separate but Not Equal

 

Gopher John

“The most telling measure of the very real division between the Seminole and the Seminole Negro was the separation of their villages. There was always space — a mile, two miles — between them. Put simply, the Seminole Negro were  considered allies, but not blood kin. The Seminoles clearly felt themselves to be superior.”
