Description
Three proof sheets with 78 black and white images (plus negatives). Santiago and Cypress were among the first participants in the Florida Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program in 1983-1984. As a master folk artist, Santiago taught Cypress how to make sweetgrass baskets. Images include them gathering sweetgrass, weaving baskets, and of Owen transcribing tapes at the reservation. Traditionally, Seminoles baskets were shallow and woven from palmetto fronds. Circa 1930, sweetgrass baskets, inspired perhaps by African American arts, were designed to represent 'authentic' Seminole culture for the tourist trade. Over time, they became traditional. 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 held each year until 2003.

Date

Description
One video recording. (3/4 tape; 27:40 minutes) Jeannette Cypress narrated. Produced by Bulger and directed by Mike Dunn. 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 can be found in S 1615, V84-16 through V-84-24. Sound recordings of the interviews can be found in S 1576, T84-111 - T84-133 and C84-108 - C84-115. Images can be found in S 1577, volume 23. The video can also be viewed online on the Folkstreams web page at http://www.folkstreams.net/film,139

Description
Four color slides. Images are dark. Cypress was the sister of Billy Cypress, at the time the chairman of the Miccosukee Tribe. Her father was a Seminole from Big Cypress Reservation, but her mother was Miccosukee. Raised in Miami, she moved to the reservation at age 12. The Florida Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1987 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalis, Steve Fragos, Merri Belland, and Barbara Seitz as preliminary research for a joint folk art between the Florida Folklife Program and the Florida Museum of History. The field researchers focused on those areas previously overlooked by FFP staff. The research focused on identifying folk artists and locating appropriate exhibit objects.

Description
Eight black and white slides. From the collection of Patsy West, director of the Seminole/Miccosukee Photographic Archive in Fort Lauderdale: historic images of Seminole peoples wearing traditional dress; pounding corn with mortar and pestle; and sewing. For other historic Seminole images, see the Bedell Collection, and the John K. Small Collection, both available online at www.floridamemory.com. The images were gathered for the Florida Folklife Program's Seminole Slide and Tape Project, a program sponsored by the American Express Company in 1982-1983 to create two educational slide/tape programs for use by schools, community groups, and other educational outlets. One program dealt with sweetgrass basket making; the other on traditional Seminole patchwork. Recordings of the finished program tapes can be found in S 1576, Box 10. Teacher guides, program scripts, and documentation of the project can be found in S 1595, Box 1.
