Creeks, Choctaws, and Seminoles
The Seminoles built their homes called Chickees, on wooden platforms three feet above the ground so that the water wouldn’t touch their homes. The Chickees had no walls to let the breezes through.
To protect the Seminole's legs from sharp saw grass andmosquitoes, the seminoles wore leggings, made out of deerhides.
Seminoles made flat-bottomed dugout canoes, that they builtfrom a tree log. They hollowed it out with stone and bonescrapers.
Wooden posts supported a slanted roof made of palm treeleaves.In the 1700s, the Seminoles came to live in the Evergladesswamplands of southern Florida.
