Seminole has its origin in American Spanish word Cimarron. Later, it was modified as simalóoni (form simanóoli, meaning runaway). Then, it was adapted as Seminolie. Seminole is a group of Native American people. It primarily comprises of different Creek population. Between the eighteenth and nineteenth century, Seminoles traveled to Northern Florida. Later, they even conquered the Everglades region.

Today, Seminoles inhabit the Oklahoma and Southern Florida and their total population is 10,000.

A language of these people is also termed Seminole. They also speak English and Miccosukee languages. There are five tribes among the Seminole.
