David Blackard

Library Program Supervisor

Since 2007 I have been pleased to help provide tribal members comprehensive access to information for their educational and enrichment needs through the Tribe’s Library Program. I wholeheartedly agree with the Library slogan that states, “Start here, go anywhere.”

Having lived in south Florida since 1953, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t interested in the History and Culture of the Florida Seminole. Thus it was an honor to earlier serve the Seminole Tribe of Florida on the Tribe’s Museum Project working for the late Billy L. Cypress, first acting as the museum’s first curator and later as the Museum Director. Patchwork and Palmettos: Seminole Miccosukee Folk Art since 1820, is my one contribution to Seminole scholarship.

Painting, plains pow-wow singing, and reading (of course)

The biggest joy in my life, after marriage, a year later was greeting my twin boys. The responsibility of caring for them and molding them into adulthood was overwhelming as well as awesome. More Info
