Guatamalan back strap weaving

Guatamalan back strap weaving

Eight color slides. The Gomez family live on the Miccosukee Reservation. Back strap weaving is a Mexican-Mayan tradition that involves a portable loom, allowing the weaver to work in any location. 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.
