Chieri Esposito making temari

Date
1985-07
Description
Ten color slides. Espasito, daughter to master folk artist Kasuko Law, making temari. She served as apprentice to Law in 1984-1985. Temari is the traditional Japanese art of decorating spheres by winding and lacing colored threads in intricate patterns around a core ball. 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 2003.

Interview with Agnes Cypress

Date
1984-03-27
Description
Two reel to reels. Agnes was the daughter of Seminole Susie Billie, a medicine woman. She discusses medicine; medical treatment on reservations; learning traditional medicine; Green Corn Dance; role of women in medicine; dreams; burial practices; various cures; hair styles; Mikasuki language; and crafts. 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.
