A new website is being created for Native American-related places to visit all across the U.S. This was announced in the Miami Herald last week. You can read the article at http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/16085983.htm .
The website is http://discovernativeamerica.com/ and is created by Miccosukee Tribal member Lee Tiger. He hopes to have it up and running within the next month.
I think this is great, and the next step beyond my Florida Seminole War website.
I created my website 10 years ago, and it soon turned into a bigger project than I originally planned. I started to add all the Seminole and other Native American sites in the 67 Florida counties that I could find information on. It turned out to be a difficult task, and I soon learned of places I never knew of. And if you want to include Indian mounds, there are more than anyone can count in Florida. What I ended up creating was a website that could become a tour guide for people like myself and others who want to tour Seminole related sites in Florida. And many people have done exactly that. I have always wanted to add some Creek sites from Georgia and Alabama, but never got working on that project.
So I can certainly understand the monumental task that Lee Tiger has taken upon to create this great website, Discover Native America. I did only one state, and he is doing that and 49 others. I wish him luck and hope to see it soon.
