Description
Forty-four color slides. Images from a Cambodian New Year's celebration for the year of the Tiger. Includes child dancers performing traditional dances (e.g. the Dancing Stone, the Celestial Dance, Legend of Mak Thoeung, and the Golden Fish) dressed in traditional Cambodian clothing. 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, 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.

Interview with fern farm worker Marie Castillo

Interview with fern farm worker Marie Castillo

Date
1985-01-20
Description
One audio cassette. Interview with fernery worker Marie Castillo, a Mexican migrant. Recorded in her kitchen, Castillo discussed Mexican migration patterns; fern farming; pinata making; religion; adjusting to Florida; family history; music; and community rites. 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.
