She discusses the role of television; Mikasuki language; the effect of drainage canals on leisure activities; air conditioning; healers; marriages; parental discipline; food such as sofke and coontie palm; stick ball game; influence of Western society upon Seminole culture; education; drug use on reservations; lullabies; traditional songs; and basket making. 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.
