Folklife apprentices at the 1995 Florida Folk Festival

Date
1995-05-28
Description
Twenty-six color slides. Toro Huaco were a Nicaraguan dance group, including Jose Silva and his apprentice Jose Silva. They were from Pembroke Pines. Hymn liner Demps and his apprentice Wright; both were from Orlando. And Japanese dancer Kazuko Law (of Gulf Breeze) with her apprentice Ofuyu Raiko Forrest (of Pensacola). They performed as Wako Kai. 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 at least 2006.
