Tampa Bay Indigenous group will protest Dollar General construction on historic site

December 3, 2020

Members from Tampa Bay’s Florida Indigenous Rights and Environmental Equality (FIREE) are planning to protest construction on a historic site in Alachua County on Thursday, Dec. 3.

They will meet up with Central Florida American Indian Movement members and supporters in Alachua County to demonstrate against plans for a Dollar General to be built upon the “Battle of Micanopy” site, where Seminole Native Americans battled the U.S. Army in 1836. The army suffered one death, while several Natives died. The exact number is unknown.
