. Epcot features Seminole artifacts on loan from tribe « JO LEE MAGAZINE

INDIAN COUNTRY TODAY – The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum deep in the swampy heart of the Florida Everglades is a hidden treasure with artifacts, dioramas, and films about Seminole history. But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the museum has been closed since last year. Taking up the mission, the American Heritage Gallery at the front of the American Adventure Pavilion at Disney’s Epcot Center in Orlando, Florida, has been sharing the Seminole arts story by borrowing objects from Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki. The current exhibit, “Creating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian Art,” represents 40 American Indian tribes and focuses on how ancestral craftsmanship inspires and relates to contemporary art.
