    Osceola, also known as Billy Powell, became an influential leader and war chief of the Seminole in Florida.

They migrated to Florida when he was a child, with other Red Stick refugees after their defeat in 1814 in the Creek Wars. As a man in the 1830s, Osceola led a small band of warriors in the Seminole resistance during the Second Seminole War, when the United States tried to remove the Seminoles from their lands.
