Saturday, May 3rd, 2 p.m. Pedro Zepeda
 
Pedro Zepeda, a member of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, will be at the Elliott Museum on May 3 to discuss the impact of the dugout canoe, and how it shaped the history of the Seminole culture. Dugout canoes, handcrafted from available pine and cypress, were vital forms of transportation, providing a means of trade and joining villages together. Pedro Zepeda absorbed his Seminole and family history and culture listening to stories told by his grandmother, great grandmother, and great aunt. He speaks fondly of "simply being around, playing, and listening to them while they were preparing meals in their chickee." When he talks about those times, his voice rings with nostalgia. For Pedro Zepeda, it's more than canoes, He learned about his personal family and culture from a great grandmother whose recollections reached back to the turn of the last century. Now, he can share that with us, connecting our life today with our shared history. Sponsored by the Florida Humanities Council.
