Seminole cultural survival

The seminoles don’t face many threats nowadays besides their small population of only about 2000 tribe members. The size of the population has grown since the Creek Wars, but it is still a very small population in the world today. Many of the seminoles have converted their religion and some traditions to western ways, but many still build chickees (homes) for private and commercial customers. Much of the Seminoles native tongue has been lost over the years and many speak english as well. The seminoles did adopted their own government on July 21, 1957 and voted on the Seminole Constitution, which federally recognizes the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
