Culture/History (brief Description):  Culture/History (brief Description) Apalachee Choctaw Delaware Erie Nanticokes Seminoles Susquehannock Apalachee:  Apalachee Apalachee culture seems to have been a cross between that of the other Florida tribes and their own Muskogean (Creek) relatives to the north. Their architecture was definitely of the southern style, and they probably had more cultural traits in common with the other southern tribes. Choctaw:  Choctaw The Choctaw Indians quickly adapted to white culture with the help of missionaries. They accepted a new religion, a new educational system, adopted the constitution and legal system of the United States Delaware:  Delaware The Delaware tribe was divided into three principal clans -- the "Turtle" which is the oldest; the "Wolf," and the "Turkey.'' Each clan was entitled to a chief and a war chief. Erie:  Erie Historically little is definitely known of the Erie and their political and social organization. The Erie Indians had many sedentary towns and villages, that were constituted of several divisions Nanticokes:  Nanticokes The Nanticokes and their descendants were of ancient descent in the region they were found, Chesapeake, by John Smith in 1608 who was the first white man to come in contact with the Nanticoke. The traditions of the Nanticoke claim they had moved there much earlier from the plains region of what is now the United States. Seminoles:  Seminoles The Indians of Florida called themselves the "Unconquered People”. These Indians collectively became known as the Seminoles, a name meaning "wild people" or "runaway." Susquehannock:  Susquehannock It's likely that the Susquehannocks had occupied the same land for several hundred years. At the time of the Jamestown settlement in Virginia, the Susquehannocks controlled a vast territory, comprised of the Susquehanna River and its tributaries, from what is now New York, across Pennsylvania, and into Maryland.
