Description: Please join us throughout the month of November to celebrate Native American Heritage Month!
Come learn about the local American Indians that were here when the Spanish made first contact. See a unique side of the Castillo’s history when Union troops used the fort as a prison and incarcerated Seminoles, Plains Indians, and Chiricahua Apaches here throughout the 1800s. Learn what life was like inside these walls through their eyes.
Special displays and events focusing on the Timucuans and Seminoles will be going on during the first weekend; the third weekend, events will focus on the Plains Indians; and the fourth weekend of the month will center on the Apache history.
