The Lost Tribes

The Amelia Island Museum of History invites the public to the opening of its newest temporary exhibit: Florida's Lost Tribes, on September 10th at 7 p.m. This collection, produced by St. Augustine painter Theodore Morris, resurrects the extinct Native American tribes of Florida in his work. Spending countless hours in libraries, museums and archeological digs, Morris created this striking collection by painstakingly researching the various tribes of Florida, granting the viewer a glimpse into their lives that would otherwise be impossible. His Timucuan collection will be on display at the museum from September 10 through December 28, with a special presentation and reception with Theodore Morris on the opening night.
