Side 1 (C82-1): Safa discusses "quince" celebrations, godparents, New Year's Traditions, the close relationship between Florida and the Caribbean, the history of Caribbean immigration in the U.S. and Florida; and modern-day Cuban, Haitian, and Puerto-Rican immigration. Also, Safa presents a historical sketch of Caribbean cultures; Chango, Santeria, and Voodoo religions in Caribbean culture. Side 2 (C82-1): Safa discusses cultural assimilation amongst Caribbean immigrants in the U.S.; rites of passage and celebrations used to reaffirm group identity; "Quinces;" the outlawing of Santeria and other religions in Cuba after the revolution; different US immigrant groups' identification with their Caribbean heritages, like in New York and Miami. Side 1 (C82-2): Safa compares Miami's cultural assimilation when compared with countries like China and India; Cuban immigrants in Florida who immigrated to the US before the 1960s, during Battista's governance; studies on the Mariel boatlift; and Cuban Mafia groups who moved to Florida after Castro's takeover and their role in Florida's exile anti-Castro organizations. She also talks about the importance of retaining traditions for immigrants; the political and economic crises in Caribbean countries; and the immigrants' viewpoints on America.

Interview with English professor Guy Miles

Interview with English professor Guy Miles

Date
1988-09-16
Description
One audio cassette. Guy Miles was a professor of English at the University of Florida from 1957 to 1972 and was an authority on southern folklife. He was born in Dresden, Tennessee in 1908 and served in the Air Force during World War II. In 1959, he and his wife Faye bought a farm in Evinston, a small community about fifteen miles south of Gainesville, near Cross Creek. In 1967, one of their neighbors in Evinston, an elderly African American woman named Eliza Washington, asked Guy to set down what she wanted the community to know about her when she died. Guy recorded her and later used her words at her funeral service. Subsequently, Guy and several of his students started recording the "talk" of local people, launching a project that was to last twenty years and generate over 700 reel-to-reel tapes. Miles was interested in recording the folklife of people through their own telling of their experiences, in the way people really said it. He recorded several main "talkers" from 1967 to 1987, providing a wealth of information on the country life of the area past and present, and relating the values, beliefs, and world view of the community through individual expression. In the interview, Miles talks about his research, his audio recordings collection, fieldwork techniques, and his life history. Miles passed away in November of 1988. The Guy Miles Collection (S 1709) consists of 727 reel to reel recordings of Miles' interviews with local residents. They have also been copied on to CDs as well as .wav files, available for public use in the Florida State Archives research room.

Recording of the Folk Arts Apprenticeship Review Committee of the Florida Folklife Council for 1993-1994

Date
1993-09-24
Description
Four audio cassettes. The meeting was held between 1pm and 5pm at the Visual Arts Building Conference Room (University of Central Florida) to decide upon which master-apprentice applicants would receive funding for 1993-1994. Folklorist Stone submitted twenty-five applications to the committee, which consisted of Jumper, Hansen, Tucker (non-voting member), Bucuvalas, Congdon, Foreman, Rodriguez, and Waterman. Bureau chief Loomis also attended. After ranking each application, the committee recommended the following teams: palmetto basket maker Marian Bowers & Martha Jones; gigante maker Isaac Duenas & David Duenas/Ramon Zepeda; old-time fiddler Willie Jones & Trenda Slaughter; African acrobatics Augustine and Felix Omdeben & Akila Baki/Moses Campbell; Sacred Steel guitarist Aubrey Ghent & Elton Noble; white oak basket maker Alfonso Jennings & Michael Steen; and pysanki artist Ola Kryway & Mary Martin. They also recommended pianist Alex McBride & Teddy Williams, but it was cow whip maker George Mills & J. Taylor Marcus who were ultimately funded. For more information on the meeting, S 1644, box 11, folder 20. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2004.
