Alice Osceola making a coil basket

Date
1982
Description
Thirty-seven color slides. Images are of Alice Osceola making a coil grass basket. Traditionally, Seminoles baskets were shallow and woven from palmetto fronds. Circa 1930, sweetgrass baskets, inspired perhaps by African American arts, were designed to represent 'authentic' Seminole culture for the tourist trade. Over time, they became traditional. The images 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 with 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.
