The Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc. was established in the early 1950’s under the authority of The Indian Reorganization Act, which established themselves as a federal corporation. A corporate charter was prepared. The majority of the Tribal members living on the reservation approved the charter, thus, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc. was officially formed.

The corporate charter provides the six member Board of Director’s a specific purpose which states, “To further the economic development of the Seminole Tribe of Florida by conferring upon said Tribe certain corporate rights, powers, privileges and immunity; to secure for the members of the Tribe an assured economic independence; and to provide for the proper exercise by the Tribe of various functions heretofore performed by the Department of Interior.”
