In 1995 he went to work almost exclusively writing and producing original photographic work for the Seminole Tribe of Florida where he became antiquated with many friends and a wealth of rare experiences and opportunities. During the 5 years he spent with the 'Tribe' he covered all of the Region 13 Indian National Finals Rodeo events across the country and into Canada in addition to writing special projects related to health issues in Native American populations. Michael also wrote on issues concerning the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act and was an advocate for the protection of ancient Native American burials and cultural sites. His work earned him a Native American Journalist Association award for writing, the first time ever the award went to a non Native American.
