Viki Grimm making a pinata

Viki Grimm making a pinata

Date
1985-02-24
Description
Forty-two color slides. Grimm demonstrating the step by step method for making a pinata -- in this case, a boat pinata. The images were taken in her home. For a complete explanation, find her interview in S 1714, box 4, tape 54. Grimm, born in Mexico City, learned to make pinatas from her family. She made two types: ones completely of papier-mache, and ones with clay pots covered in papier-mache. Pinatas were used during the posada celebrations, a Mexican Christmas tradition that was observed the nine days before the holiday to represent Mary and Joseph's trek to Bethlehem. In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
