What We Do

Fort Pierce

In 1995, fifty acres of St. Lucie County pine jungle were put into the trust of the United States of America -- the sixth Florida Seminole Reservation. Soon, it will be home to two dozen Seminole families, descendants of Seminole Indians who have lived in this area since before the city or county were even named.

Here is a historic 1995 photo taken of former Chairman James Billie, U.S. Dept. of the Interior officials and the future residents of the Fort Pierce Reservation on the day the reservation land was signed into trust.
