Team Building on Miccosukee Tribal Islands
Skip across the shallow waters and saw grass prairies to a distant Miccosukee Island as your Native American guide prepares you for a day of challenge and cultural discovery! Our goal: build a native chickee dwelling on an island owned by our host, Johnny Tigertail. We will separate into teams who will each be given the task to build a traditional Miccosukee chickee. Each team will be responsible for organizing, delegating and constructing their chickee under the guidance and accumulated cultural wisdom of our native Indian guides.
Next, we will travel further into the Everglades to experience a historic Miccosukee island camp. As the sun sets we will join the island’s native wildlife (including a couple of resident gators), light the torches, fire up the grills and enjoy a great feast, Everglades-style.
After dinner we will board our airboat back to the mainland hoping, in the darkness of the Everglades, to reveal hundreds of reds eyes staring back toward us from the waters of the Florida Everglades as our driver’s searchlight cuts through the night.
