Seminole Cosmos

Some seminoles converted to the Christian faith while others continue their traditional beliefs. Their traditional beliefs state that there is one Great Spirit and some lesser good and bad spirits. The seminoles give the spirits offerings and prayers. The spirits are believed to live in a sky-world and a sub-world below the earth. All creatures are believed to have spirits that are set free once the creature dies. The sun, moon, rainbows and many other parts of nature are considered supernatural spirits.
