Shouldn’t my ancestral spirit be angry? The Seminoles are just an invading tribe of foreigners who claim my ancestor’s bones. How many invasions have my ancestors seen – Florida history provides a pretty good estimate. If my ancestral spirit cares for me – wouldn’t she want to open up a can of whup-ass on the world?

My ancestor’s tribe was obviously allied with the Spanish; therefore, she’s more native than the Seminoles, but she could have been Apalachee or another tribal member but I give the main character in my novel a Timucuan ancestry. The other novel also has a main character with native root, but I may make him Ais.
