We are doing double duty today with our day 4 of the Photo Challenge and also joining Oz and Sugar's Loving Life - #FuelTheCure - which is helping to raise money for cancer research into Dogs and Cats thanks to the wonderful support of Zukes. Please think about joining in as Zukes is donating $5.00 for each post. You can also win some Zukes and we all KNOW who totally yum those are - so what ya waiting for?
We were off for another "Loving Life' adventure and headed over to the Fort Caroline Timucuan Preserve again - only this time we took a different path - one we hadn't been along before. Even though it was hot - along the path under the trees with the breeze blowing - it was actually just perfect. Crazy Mom decided to stop into the Information Center and pick me up an official Bark Ranger Bandana - trust me - this is the first and last time I will wear it - I don't do clothing Mom - remember! Apart from that we had a pawsome walkies and we even got to scare some squirrels!
Just a bit of information we found - The Timucua were an American Indian people who lived in Northeast and North Central Florida and southeast Georgia. They were the largest indigenous group in that area and consisted of about 35 chiefdoms, many leading thousands of people. The people suffered severely from the introduction of Eurasian infectious diseases, to which they had no immunity. By 1595, their population was estimated to have been reduced from 200,000 to 50,000 and thirteen chiefdoms remained. By 1700, the population of the tribe had been reduced to 1000. Warfare against them by the English colonists and native allies completed their extinction as a tribe soon after the turn of the 19th century.

It's sad that a whole population is history today.... we only can read or learn about them in books or museums. That was a super post, I love it to read about things what happened many moons ago and about the people who lived there once. Pawsome!ReplyDelete
