Miami History: Miami is considered the capital of Latin America, but at least 10,000 years ago it was home to the Tequesta, who had settlements from West Palm Beach all the way to the Florida Keys.
They lived off the land, taking advantage of the natural environment, and were especially skilled at fishing. The Spanish arrived to Miami and conflict with the Tequesta ensued. Fast forward 100 years, and the Tequesta have been decimated by both warfare and disease.
The Seminole Nation moved to the area and more warfare plagued the region. Miami was founded as a city in 1896. I
n the 1960s, Cubans began immigrating to South Florida, fleeing Fidel Castro’s regime. Miami is divided into several neighborhoods like Wynwood, Little Havana, Overtown, Little Haiti, Downtown, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Design District, and more!
