James Black Wolf Barfield

Electrician and War Chief for Seminoles of Central Florida

It was a big transition for James to move from living with his tribe on a reservation in Georgia to living further north in the city of Newark. He fell in love with the culture in the city but he realized that some Native Americans moved away from reservations and chose not to pass along their heritage. He hopes that one day he will have tribal council meetings in Newark to maintain the traditions and culture.
