The Panther Reservations As it turns out, all this ecological maneuvering, all this playing god (in the "development" of the Everglades and all the subsequent managing that is then undertaken) has been a huge ecological mistake that, today, Congress, President Clinton, and a host of others are trying to unravel, in a twisted and complicated fashion.

More pollution and less Everglades means less filtering, and the system becomes a toxic sink. 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 .

That is the lesson these traditions will teach without speaking. And that is a great gift. In the center of their chickee (traditional house) Seminoles keep a fIre-al­ ways, it seems.
