Interview with Seminole Linda Bowers

Interview with Seminole Linda Bowers

Date
1981-09-01
Description
One reel to reel. (Copied onto C81-60.) The first nine minutes of the recording are traffic and swamp ambience. Bowers discusses Seminole crafts; Seminole languages; life with the Oklahoma Seminoles; the role of women in the culture; the future of the Seminole people; traditional clothing; and patchwork. 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.
