SELECTIONS FROM THE COLLECTION

Featuring the Siggy R. Second-Jumper Collection

Now Open!

Recently, the museum acquired several items from Sigfried "Siggy" R. Second – Jumper. They include a drum set made by Thomas Storm Sr. for his drum group, Cypress Prairie; Siggy Jumper was a member of that group. Also included are baskets and a shirt made by Thomas’ mother, Mary Jane Storm. These items given to the museum help share a deeper and more nuanced story of Seminole culture.

Siggy Jumper is a singer for the Chiricahua Apaches Crown Dancers at the Mescalero Apache Reservation. Growing up in the Miami area, he formed many deep friendships with the Storm, Frank, Osceola, Cypress, and Jumper families.
