Florida Heritage



The Indian Heritage Tableau outside of the Museum of Florida History in downtown Tallahassee was created by sculptors Bradley Cooley and Bradley Cooley Jr.. These figures symbolize the importance of the history and culture of the native people of Florida.

This is a beautiful reminder of the importance of Native American heritage and the diversity of Native American peoples. The tribes of the Southeast, as you have shown here, are different than the Southwestern tribes in Arizona, for example. The share histories of mistreatment by Anglos, however.

These are terrific, Lois. I emiggened the pic to see the details. I like that they are active, not just standing sternly.

Great shot. I love the more dynamic public sculpture we see now rather than some guy on a horse with pigeon poop on his head.
