Jan Godown Annino

Jan Godown Annino delights in talking about the real SEMINOLES who lived in North Florida, before the collegiate kind arrived.

Seminole Tribe of Florida leader Betty Mae Tiger Jumper authorized Jan to share with children about alligator wrestling days, and a great deal more.

Jan’s lyrical tribute to Betty Mate Tiger Jumper is an award-winner from Scholastic/ NatGeo. Her poems are published by Milkweed Editions & Today’s Little Ditty.
