 - An interview with William McKinley Osceola, Co-Chairman of the sovereign Miccosukee Seminole Nation - Chief Osceola was asked, "I read in Buffalo Tiger's book, A Life in the Everglades that according to Buffalo Tiger, former legal spokesman of the Everglades Miccosukee Tribe of Seminole Indians, (Resigned March 24, 1961) the Miccosukees speak a language called Eeloponkee. Can you tell me what eeloponkee means?"  And he responded, "Eeloponkee means, the language that 'we' speak."  I then asked him, "Does the word Ilopango have a meaning in the Eeloponkee language?"  And Chief Osceola responded, "Yes, ilopango means, the language that 'I' speak."

In the oral history of the Maya Lenca, during the great eruption of Ilopango, the Miccosukee Lords were present.

Ilopango is a caldera that formed in 260 A.D. Ash from this explosive eruption covered much of central El Salvador. Lake Ilopango fills part of the caldera. Islas Quemadas, a volcanic dome, formed within the caldera in 1879-1880. Periods of dome extrusion coincided with tidal forces. Earthquake swarms preceded each extrusion.
The violent eruption at Ilopango destroyed the land for a 60 mile (100 km) radius around the volcano. Thousands of people died. Excavations, like the one in this photo, are providing new insights into Mayan culture. The eruption ended the presence of Mayan society in the highlands. Large numbers of refugees fled to lowland areas in Guatemala and Belize.
