Selected Bibliography

These works cover a broad range of general topics and most are published. If they are not available at your local library, ask your librarian to direct you to the Interlibrary Loan Department. Through this department your library will borrow the book for you from another library, at no charge to you. This is a great service! Unpublished works, such as Ph.D. dissertations, may be available on microfilm through your Interlibrary Loan Department as well. If they are not, ask your Librarian how to purchase them from University Microfilms International, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Neither the Seminole Tribe of Florida nor the former Dept. of Anthropology & Genealogy makes any claims concerning the accuracy of these publications. Much of the information concerning the history of the Seminoles and their ancestors, as written by Euroamerican researchers, is controversial. Please be critical readers.
