A Note From Membership

It is the season for winter guests here in the sunshine state and at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum.  The weather is fine, the birds are here on their migration south and people are visiting from all over the U.S. and the world.

 

 

 

Tools of War exhibit opening.  This is our newest exhibit, which looks at the changing technology of weapons and how these advancements shaped the Seminole Wars. This exhibit features great items from our collection, including weaponry from the Seminole war period and earlier.  Museum members should have received their invitation.

 

From Surviving to Thriving: an Everglades Economy continues on view in the East Gallery.  It is a chronological look at how the geographical area commonly known as the Everglades has sustained the Seminole Tribe of Florida from the mid 1800s to the present. 

This year we have participated in several local festivals and events including Battle of Okeechobee Reenactment, Swamp Cabbage Festival, Brighton Field Days and South Florida Fair.  Our goal is to let people know about the Museum by providing information and directions.  It has been great fun meeting people and talking with them about all we have available.

A Conversation About Conservation with Museum Conservator Corey Smith, Thursday March 17 at Edison College Hendry/Glades Center.  We have collaborated with Edison College – Hendry/Glades Center, LaBelle Heritage Center, Clewiston Museum.  All entities are helping share the word and with members and within their communities.  Refreshments generously provided by Riverside Realty, Inc.  If you are in the area, please join us.

To enhance your Museum experience we offer free tours on most days, check the calendar on our website for times and days.
