Interview with Mildred Tommie (with Sally May Hall interpreting)

Interview with Mildred Tommie (with Sally May Hall interpreting)

Two reel to reels. Tommie discusses (through Hall) patchwork sewing including when and how she learned the craft; patterns and designs; the choice of colors and fabrics; clothing styles; patchwork designs; and sewing machines. She also describes her childhood; her family; the Seminole drink sofke; childhood stories; differences between Creek and Seminole peoples; hair styles; and Seminole healing. 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.
