Interview with Linda and Paul Bowers

Interview with Linda and Paul Bowers

Date
1981-10-24
Description
Two reel to reels. (Copied onto audio cassettes C81-89 and C81-90.) The Bowers discuss sewing machines; patchwork; how they learned to sew traditional Seminole patterns; designs; clothing; life in Big Cypress Seminole Indian reservation; sofke; fry bread; native languages; chickees; the Green Corn Dance; male initiation rites; and cooking/eating alligators. The recordings were created for the Florida Folklife Program's Seminole Slide and Tape Project, a program sponsored by the American Express Company in 1982-1983 to create two educational slide/tape programs for use by schools, community groups, and other educational outlets. One program dealt with sweetgrass basket making; the other on traditional Seminole patchwork. Recordings of the finished program tapes can be found in S 1576, Box 10. Teacher guides, program scripts, and documentation of the project can be found in S 1595, Box 1.
