India Independence Celebration at Sandalwood High School

Date
1988-08
Description
Fifty-one color slides. Images of a program celebrating India's Independence, which occured when India separated from the British Empire August 15, 1947. Students from Poornima Shantharam's class danced, played music, and displayed traditional Indian dress. Participants also served traditional Indian food. 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, and 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.
