    Decent introducvtion to the Seminole chief

    I know a lot about the Seminole chief and put forward a theory on his death. I strongly believe Osceola escaped with the other chiefs while being held prisoner and that a deal was made between the U.S. government and select Seminoles that the Seminole war would stop if these fellow Seminoles took care of Osceola for the government. The government would back off allowing the Seminoles the dignity of not surrendering and being relocated while saving face of the U.S. government by concluding that Osceola died while in captivity. On his escape, Osceola was betrayed by two indians he trusted while on a routine hunting expedition in a remote area away from the village. The indians jostled the canoe to send Osceola out into alligator infested waters where he drowned. The indians returned feigning grief and later ascended in the Seminole hierarchy, where they betrayed their chief for personal gain. This was confirmed by a Mikasuki historian at the Mikasuki indian village tourist center on the Tamiami trail. Osceola had to murdered but made to look like an accident.
