Government to 3D A ll O u r R ela l ions end its war against the Seminoles. Thee hundred Seminoles remained in the ? Florida swamps. The Land The Everglades begin at Lake Okeechobee, one of the largest freshwater lakes in the continental United States. The Everglades originally sloped 200 miles south in a natural drain system of rivers, lakes, and wetlands. This rich ecosystem of water, grasses, cypress, meadows, marshes, and waterways pro­ vides a haven for a wealth of life. Rare birds such as wood storks, whooping cranes, and American peregrine falcons, along with crocodiles and Florida pan­ thers, all fmd a refuge there.

In 1989, federal and state scientists discovered that freshwater fish in the Everglades had high levels of mercury, largely, they surmised, from the post-harvest burning of the cane fields . Raccoons, alligators, and panthers in the area are also IS contaminated with large amounts of mercury. High up on the food chain, the big cats and the big crocodiles are the first to go from pollution. In mid- 1 989, a Florida panther was found dead in the Everglades. Liver samples from the cat found 1 1 0 ppm of mercury, indicating that mercury poisoning may have been the cause of death.

The traditional Seminoles are clear that they do not want to go to the res­ ervation. They have never wanted to.
