The Seminole Nation of Oklahoma is a federally recognized Seminole tribe based in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. It is the largest of the three federally recognized Seminole organizations, which include the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida. Its members are descendants of the majority of the Seminole in Florida in the 1830s, who were forcibly removed to Oklahoma. The Seminole Nation of Oklahoma is headquartered in Wewoka, Oklahoma. Of 18,800 enrolled tribal members, 13,533 live within the state of Oklahoma. The tribal jurisdictional area covers Seminole County, Oklahoma. Seminoles remaining in Florida fought against US forces in two periods of war (the Second and Third Seminole wars) and peace was made without their defeat.
