Seminole children playing traditional stickball

Seminole children playing traditional stickball

Date
1989-01
Description
Twenty-eight color slides. The traditional stick ball game, played by many Southeastern indigenous peoples, dates back to Precolumbian times. The game consists of a small ball made of deer hide which is struck with sticks (similar to LaCrosse in Europe) to strike a pole -- or an object on top of the pole. The game often is embued with religious and political meanings. Similar images can be found in S 1577, v. 49 and v 50. The images were created in part for use in an exhibit on Seminole culture at the Museum of Florida History.

Interview with Pat Diamond

Description
Two reel to reels (also copied onto C84-111/112). Diamond, a secretary to Seminole Chairman Jim Billie, discusses culture on Seminole reservations. Topics include native languages; expanding reservation land; marrying non-Indians; teaching culture to children; reservation and tribal politics; role of women in tribal politics; recent reservation projects; changes that bingo has brought to the reservations; cattle ranching; selling traditional crafts; role of television in Seminole lives; medicine; cultural identification; stick ball games; and tourism. 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.
