43rd Annual National Indian Timber Symposium
43rd Annual National Indian Timber Symposium
Mon, June 10, 2019 @ 08:00 AM — Thu, June 13, 2019 @ 06:00 PM
THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

The Seminole Tribe of Florida welcomes you to the Intertribal Timber Council's 43rd Annual National Indian Timber Symposium. Come experience the beauty and unpredictability of peninsular Florida. This year’s symposium will be held at the end of our wildfire season so don’t be surprised to see smoke in the air in close proximity to thunderstorms as you fly into the Ft. Lauderdale airport. Symposium attendees will get chances to see famous Florida images of the Everglades, alligators, sunshine, and after meeting outings to the beaches and casinos. Hotels are just a few minutes from the airport with convenient shuttle buses to most locations. Most activities will be held at the Hard Rock Casino and Event Center or the Big Cypress Reservation. Local outings and events are available for the entire family including airboat tours, swamp safaris, and the beaches. We look forward to seeing you in June. SHO NA BISH.
