Interview with Nuhad Farmand

Two audio cassettes. Her husband Kamel is present for part of the interview. Farmand discusses moving to Florida at age 21; her father-in-law working in the South as a salesman; life in Bethlehem and South America; learning embroidery; patterns and designs; symbolism; Palestinian clothing; Ramallah-American Clubs; Palestinian community in Jacksonville; dating and marriage practices; naming traditions; her husband Kamel talked about running a grocery store and sandwich shop; Arabic music; Christianity among Palestinians; and life in the U.S. Images of Farmand can be found in S 1577, v.36. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
