Florida Indians Gallery

 

Bringing in wild animals, fish, and other stores.

At a set time every year they gather in all sorts of wild animals, fish, and even crocodiles; these are then put in baskets, and loaded upon a sufficient number of the curly-haired hermaphrodites above mentioned, who carry them on their shoulders to the storehouse. This supply, however, they do not resort to unless in case of the last necessity. In such event, in order to preclude any dissension, full notice is given to all interested ; for they live in the utmost harmony among themselves. The chief, however, is at liberty to take whatever of this supply he may choose.” Narrative of Le Moyne, Jacques Le Moyne
