Cypress woodcarver Leslie McKee

Date
1984-11
Description
Nine color slides. From Ohio, McKee makes carvings from cypress knees. Images created as fieldwork for the apprenticeship program. 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, who was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.

Interview with Ethel Santiago on Seminole cooking and food

Interview with Ethel Santiago on Seminole cooking and food

Date
1984
Description
Three reel to reels. Santiago discuss and demonstrates Seminole cooking. She discusses fry bread, sofkee, clan systems, proper creation and maintenance of log fireplaces (use cypress and oak), boiling, proper welcoming of guests, role of men and women and children in food preparation, cooking training, use of corn, cooking in different weather, use of fire, and stories/beliefs connected with cooking. The Seminole Video Project was a joint project between the Florida Folklife Program and WFSU-TV. Completed in Spring 1984, and financed by a Florida Endowment for the Humanities grant with the support of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, the project culminated in a thirty-minute documentary entitled "Four Corners of the Earth" which profiled Ethel Santiago, a Seminole craftswoman and Tribal representative. The program addressed such issues as cultural retention within contemporary society; the role of women in Seminole society; traditional Seminole foods, arts, and medicine; and the changing emphasis on clan affiliations. The project covered Seminoles on the Big Cypress and Hollywood Reservations and at Immokalee, Florida. Raw video footage, along with the finished product, can be found in S 1615, V84-16 through V-84-24. Images from the project can be found in S 1577, v. 23, slides S83-2994 - S83-3020.
