Seminole storyteller Hancock describes how he learned stories from several Seminole elders, including Billy Bowlegs III, even though he spent little time on reservations as his father worked for the US Corps of Engineers. Students ask Hancock extensively about Seminole life and the tribe's leadership, hunting, games, clans, religion, holidays, and chickees. Afterwards, he tells origin stories, including "How the Sun Came to Be," "How the Stars Came to Be," and "How the Mosquitos Came to Be."

Description
One audio cassette. Three stories by Hancock. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Palm Beach County was a joint venture between the Palm Beach County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was conducted between 1986 and 1987 by folklorist Jan Rosenberg with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The goal was to impart an appreciation of multi-ethnic traditions and provide a sense of place to the mobile student population. The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. 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. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.
