      "The Calusa and Their Legacy is the first popular book focusing on the Calusa Indians, their ancestors, and the coastal water world in which they lived. It also takes a look at the arts and culture of contemporary south Florida Indian people--the Seminole and Miccosukee. The best book for kids is probably The Calusa And Their Legacy, which tells the history of the Calusa tribe in clear language with many pictures. A more complex book on Calusa society is The Evolution of the Calusa, which I recommend to older students.

    Ancient Origins articles related to Calusa in the sections of history, archaeology, human origins, unexplained, artifacts, ancient places and myths and legends.
