This march and two-step appears to be a companion piece to Alstyne's first big success, Navajo (1903)
and indeed has many similarities. Its form is ABCDDC with an 8-bar introduction whereby the D strain is of 32 bars all the others having 16 bars. The piece opens somewhat sombrely but gathers in drama and intensity leading up to a triumphant finale with a most definite Fine. Unlike Navajo
with its colourful front cover, the first page gracing Seminole
is plain but effective with just the face of an almost Buddha-like Indian maid centred on a dark blue background.
