Who and What Is A Seminole ~~
         1st - Cimarone; African Merchant Seafarers (began in ancient history)
Labeled so by Spanish colonizers. The term meant "wild", like stray cattle, with no ethnicity implied by the description. They resided among the many American Native nations (Calusa; Tekesta, et al) who were living in Florida when they arrived as merchants;
       2nd - Istalusti; Estalusti (1699) Enslaved Black bonds persons who absconded by the hundreds from Virginia and Carolina to Florida, the first arrivals noted by the Spanish, in 1699; a Creek Muskogee term;
         
3rd - Yamassee (1715) A Black Indian nation, ran to Florida beginning after the Yamassee War of 1715 until 1750;
        4th - Black & Red Okonee Lower Creek (1750) to Florida after General Oglethorpe established the colony of Savannah in 1733; tribe split over Black American Natives in the nation. These Indians of Georgia had no "R" in their language; Cimarone became "Cimalone" after 1750, then later "Seminole." Later Arrivals: Upper Creek Muspa; "Red Sticks" after Creek Wars 1812-1814 Mikasuki (early 1800's) to Florida from Alabama/Georgia border area; Other Muspa (Muskogee) Chata, Alibamu, and non-Muspa Tsalagi (Cherokee), et al.
