The Seminoles gave this museum its name as a way of describing the purpose of the building, which is a place to learn and to remember. Before entering the museum we first walked past the statue of Sam Jones. He was a great warrior as well as a powerful spiritual leader of his people. A museum brochure asserts that without him there might not be Seminoles living in Florida today. He participated in three Seminole wars against the U.S. military in the 1800s.
