St Petersburg Food History: Pinellas Point Temple Mound & Juan Ortiz rescue story

The first real settlers in this area were Native Americans who fished, hunted, grew crops and built the mound here.   Legend has it was here that Juan Ortiz, a captured Spaniard, was nearly “barbequed” to death by a local chief as revenge for the brutal treatment of his people by the Spanish explorer Narvaez Panfilio in the previous year. Ortiz was supposedly rescued from the “barbacoa,” a rack used for smoking and drying meat and hides, by the chief’s daughter who later helped him escape to a friendlier tribe across the bay.  Ten years later, Ortiz joined up with the De Soto expedition and worked as a translator.  His tale was included in various reports that eventually made their way to England.

It’s possible that John Smith got the idea from the Ortiz story  to fabricate his own “rescue” tale involving another Indian princess, Pocohantas, eighty years later. 

Of the more than a thousand archaeological sites in the Tampa Bay area, this is one of the best preserved. Visiting the site set in the midst of a prosperous suburban neighborhood has been made easier in recent years as you can now walk  to the top via a wooden boardwalk and stairs.  Signs along the way explain the history and natural features of the site.

St Petersburg Food Heritage: Maximo Park
The park is named for Spanish/Cuban Antonio Maximo Hernandez, who operated a fish processing business on the shore for the Cuban markets in the first half of the 19th century.  Before that it was another indian village occupied as early as 800 AD.  A 1,200 foot long shell mound now runs from the woods to the picnic area along the shore crest.   A trail with informative signs shares the area with frisbee golfers.  
Painting by Hermann Trappman, a Gulfport artist, specializes in researching and painting Florida’s history.  Many of his works give us vivid portraits of Native American foodways.  http://floridafrontier.com/Hermann_Trappman.html

Luck is minimal, they need the blessing from the Pope and the touch of God.
