Village Museum

Opened in 1983, our Museum offers visitors a glimpse into the Tribe’s unique way of life. Miccosukee history and culture is preserved through historical documents, archival photographs and original artifacts.

Alongside permanent exhibits showcasing the early life of the Tribe as they adapted to the Everglades, the museum hosts rotating exhibits highlighting historical and contemporary Native American, First Nations and Aboriginal life.

What are these things?

Bald cypresses, which you’ll see all over the Everglades, are easily identifiable by their large, protruding "knees."

What does it mean?

Patchwork is colorful and abstract but they all have meaning! This example is of the turtle design!

Did you know?

Alligators are apex predators that have existed for millions of years and play a very important role in the ecosystem of the Everglades.

Alligator "Wrestling"

We don’t “wrestle” our ‘gators—we love them and hope that you’ll learn about them through our demonstrations! Watch in awe as a brave demonstrator explains centuries-old traditions and rituals that have been handed down by generations of Miccosukee with their bare hands!

Alligator demonstrations daily schedule:
11:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m.

Watch the action:

World Famous Demonstrations
The Village is home to the world-famous Alligator “Wrestling” show. These large and powerful creatures originally provided the Miccosukee with many important resources for their survival within the Everglades.
Sharing the Everglades
The Miccosukee learned early on how to capture them for food and commodities like their tough skin. The times have changed and the Tribe’s relationship has moved towards conservation and education about the alligator’s role in this unique environment.
