Oscar Hernandez making wooden lobster traps

Fourteen color slides. Hernandez was an insurance worker in Cuba before immigrating to the US. He became a fisher, and then made fish and lobster traps. He made about 300 traps a year. He also fished for lobsters and crabs when not making traps. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
