In the heart of the Everglades is the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation where you can discover South Florida’s history in the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum, named after a Seminole word for “a place to learn.” Native American stories and traditions have been preserved here and in attractions such as the Miccosukee Indian Village.
