You need go no farther than downtown Miami to discover some of the cultural riches left behind by the Native Americans of South Florida. The primary village of the Tequesta Indians, one of the first native North American groups encountered by Juan Ponce de León in 1513, is actually located at the mouth of the Miami River. A National Historic Landmark, the “Miami Circle” demonstrates the unique and complex architecture unique to the Tequesta and has shed light on their trade patterns and ceremonial practices.
