DID YOU KNOW?

On August 3, 1990, President of the United States George H. W. Bush declared the month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month, thereafter commonly referred to as Native American Heritage Month.

The UF CVM campus is located on lands that were once home to the Timucua Tribe. By 1595, contact with Europeans and the diseases they brought with them, had decimated the majority of the Timucuans. By 1700, the Timucuan population had been reduced to a mere 1000. By the end of the French and Indian war and the acquisition of Florida by Britain in 1763 there were perhaps 125 remaining. This last remnant either migrated with the Spanish colonists to Cuba or were absorbed into the Seminole population. They are now considered an extinct tribe.

Today, there are two federally recognized tribes in Florida: The Miccosukee Tribe and the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
