🪶 Why an 1800s Sash Is So Important to Osceola’s Legacy and the Seminole People
In 2018, a sash believed to have been worn by Osceola during his capture in 1837 made its way home to the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum and the Seminole Tribe of Florida. On November 2, 2022, the Museum installed it on exhibit to honor Osceola during Native American Heritage Month.
Osceola’s image continues to be one that invokes strong feelings and embodies Seminole resistance, power, and memory. Even over 180 years after his death, Osceola remains an important figure in Seminole history and art.
