Why Living history?

In our fast paced, computer oriented society, we are so vastly separated by our technology from our connections to the natural world, that we sometimes fail to understand our vital dependence on its preservation. We struggle to find a balance between our ever increasing needs and the growing concerns of the depletion and pollution of our natural and cultural resources.

Living History educational programs, such as those offered by HOTAO, are a highly effective tool that serves to link us to our most ancient ties with the Earth while meeting the public's demand for first hand knowledge of the customs and beliefs of the original native peoples of Florida.
