This museum documents and interprets the history and culture of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma and the people and events that make its capital, Wewoka, one of the most historically significant and culturally diverse communities in Oklahoma. Through the use of select artifacts, historic photographs and interpretive exhibits, the events and stories that shaped the home of the Seminoles for more than a century are chronicled in a captivating, educational and enlightening experience at the Seminole Nation Museum.

The Seminole Nation has a complex and fascinating history.  After the United States achieved independence, settlers in Florida began to put increasing pressure on the Seminole to migrate west, even though they had been living peacefully in Florida since long before Europeans had ever come to their land.  The conflict escalated as Southern slave-owners discovered that the Seminole tribes had become safe havens for escaped slaves. Some Seminole had previously been enslaved by European settlers and so had a profound understanding of the plight of the African slaves. Soon, the confrontation turned into what is now known as the Seminole Wars, which resulted in the near total removal of the Seminole and Black Seminole populations from Florida to the Indian Territory, later known as Oklahoma.
