Alligator Festival of Lake City Florida, Inc.

Alligator Warrior Festival - O’Leno State Park - Alligator Festival of Lake City Florida, Inc.

The first Alligator Festival was held in 1995 at Olustee Park in downtown Lake City. Joe Blewette, former editor of the Lake City Reporter in the 70’s, had proposed the idea of a festival to recognize the early history of Columbia County prior to the Civil War. The Alligator Festival of Lake City Florida, Inc. sponsors their annual Alligator Warrior Festival the third weekend of October at the O’Leno State Park in High City, Florida.

Some of the Indians in and around the Everglades signed a cease-fire agreement with the United States in 1957 and organized themselves as the Seminole Tribe of Florida and gained Federal Recognition and now have 6 reservations.

Some of the other Indians in and around the Evergaldes, wanting a separate government, formed the Miccosukee Tribe of Seminole Indians and were recognized by the U.S. government in 1958 and by the Cuban government in 1959. Beacuse neither the Seminole nor the Miccosukee of Florida ever signed a treaty ending the war, they both can claim to be as yet unconquered.

Other Florida Indians and their descendants have either not met or attempted to meet the current criteria set by the Federal Government for a government to government relationship. Because they lived outside of the Everglades, their families and institutions stayed hidden through the removal and Jim Crow eras. Today, many of them have organized as cultural communities, non-profit corporations and associations in order to maintain and pass on their identity and traditions.

Florida is currently home to a diversity of American Indian communities, groups and individuals from Floria and from other states, many of whom do not live on reservations. According to the 2010 census, Florida is the state with the 11th largest American Indian population in the USA.
