To protect their legs from sharp saw grass and mosquitoes, Seminoles wore leggings. They made the leggings of deer hide.
They built their homes called chickees. On wooden platforms three feet above the ground. The platform protected the houses from the swampy ground. Wooden posts supported a slanted roof constructed of palmetto leaves. To allow breezes to blow through, the chickee had no walls.
To move along the shallow streams, the Seminole developed flat-bottom canoes. They constructed each canoe from a fallen cypress tree that they hollowed out using seashells.
