Description
One proof sheet with fifteen black and white images (plus negatives). Images of Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation, including airboats, chickees and homes. Also includes two images of folklorist Andrea Graham quilting. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. 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 until 2003.

Seminole children playing traditional stickball

Seminole children playing traditional stickball

Date
Description
Five 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 48. The images were created in part for use in an exhibit on Seminole culture at the Museum of Florida History.
