Florida is home to several Native American tribes, including the Seminoles and Miccosukees. Music is an essential element in many Native American ceremonies performed for hunting, harvesting, the changing of the seasons, and for other purposes. Songs typically combine vocals with a combination of drums, rattles, and flutes. Floridian performers of this genre in our collection include Josie Billie, Fred Beaver, and Billy Bowlegs III.
