Okeechobee, Florida

Day 565

     The name Okeechobee comes from the Hitchiti words oki (water) and chubi (big). The Hitchiti language, one of the many languages spoken by the Seminole tribes, was spoken in Georgia and Florida during the Colonial Period. The Seminole Indians were originally from Florida. Today they principally live in Oklahoma with a minority in Florida.

     We are staying on the Seminole Indian Reservation. Today they had a fish fry that included alligator. Very tasty. 

     The reservation sits on Lake Okeechobee, which is the largest freshwater lake in the State of Florida.
