Interview with Agnes Cypress

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.
