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.

Date

Description
One audio cassette. Interview with Mrs. Maybelle Stokes Parker, a former fish house owner on the St. Johns River.

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.
