Seven color slides. Images are dark. Bert was born approximately in 1925. She spoke little English. She made coiled sweetgrass baskets. Used newer grass, using cotton thread. She made basket bottoms out of palmetto fiber. The Florida Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1987 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalis, Steve Fragos, Merri Belland, and Barbara Seitz as preliminary research for a joint folk art between the Florida Folklife Program and the Florida Museum of History. The field researchers focused on those areas previously overlooked by FFP staff. The research focused on identifying folk artists and locating appropriate exhibit objects.
