Interview with Myakka City resident Peter Burkart

Interview with Myakka City resident Peter Burkart

Two reel to reels. Burkart was recent Myakka resident-- moved there c. 1977. He discusses the sense of community there, rural life, traditional practices, livestock raising, bee keeping, leisure, selling produce, and socializing. The Myakka Community Profile Project was conducted between October 1983 and March 1984 through a partnership with the Crowley Museum and Nature Center, and the Florida Folklife Program, funded by the Florida Endowment for the Humanities. The fieldwork and resultant booklet/slideshow, created by museum employee Robert Cottrell and folklorist Pat Waterman, was to profile the lifestyles and values of the Myakka community, located in Southwest Florida in Manatee County. See S 1682 for more information on the project.
