Interview with Ethel Santiago on Seminole healing and stories

Interview with Ethel Santiago on Seminole healing and stories

Date
1984
Description
Four reel to reels. Santiago discusses healing, medicine, gathering herbs, types of medicinal herbs used, healing training, gender roles, proper bahvior for Seminole women, trickster stories (rabbit stories), fire origin stories, the Green Corn Dance, and uses of fire. 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.
