Description
Two audio cassettes. At the time, the Omebens had lived in Miami for ten years. The dances they taught through the apprenticeship program date back over a thousand years, were performed only by males who created their own costumes, and served as a religious declaration and rite of passage. For more information on Omebens and their apprentices Baki and Campbell, see S 1644, box 11, folder 33. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000.

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 2004.
