Seminole sweetgrass basket - "Sweetgrass" baskets have been made by Seminole Indians for more than 60 years. The wild sweetgrass used in these beautiful, sturdy creations is hand-picked from high, dry areas of the Everglades basin, washed, laid in the sun to dry and sewn together with colored threads. Palmetto fiber is the usual basket base material. The baskets may take many different shapes. The Seminole Tribe of Florida.

"In 1967, Betty Mae Jumper became the first woman elected chair of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. She was the first woman to lead a major Native American tribe in the 20th century United States. Jumper was among the first Florida Seminoles to earn a high school diploma. She trained as a nurse and helped provide healthcare among the Seminoles, scattered in numerous camps from Indian River County to the Tamiami Trail."--State Library & Archives of Florida, on Flickr Commons
