Date
1983
Description
One video recording. (3/4 tape; 27:40 minutes) Jeannette Cypress narrated. Produced by Bulger and directed by Mike Dunn. 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 can be found in S 1615, V84-16 through V-84-24. Sound recordings of the interviews can be found in S 1576, T84-111 - T84-133 and C84-108 - C84-115. Images can be found in S 1577, volume 23. The video can also be viewed online on the Folkstreams web page at http://www.folkstreams.net/film,139
