Happy Birthday!

Chief James Billie

ex-Chairman of Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc.

was born 3/20/1944

        I was raised in the swamp by my old grandpa,
        We ate turtle meat, a fish called gar.
        Grandpa told me 'bout panthers and bears
        But most of all - he told me to beware
           'Bout hul-pah-te cho-bee nock-sho-nitch-kee-kah
           Hul-pah-te cho-bee oo-kun kay-ye-wah
           Hul-pah-te cho-bee heh-nu-kah che-che wah
           Hul-pah-te cho-bee he-mah-shah che-wah.
        I learned to live and I learned to survive
           With Hul Pahtechobe.

                "Big Alligator" by Jim Billie

His road band, The Shack Daddies has been very successful. He's also credited with the first effective tribal-land gambling casino and $ multi-million income to the Seminoles. And after 20 years, the mandatory financial scandal.

I'm sure you'll be interested to know he lost his right ring finger alligator wrestling on 2/2/2000.
