Ethel Santiago teaching Margaret Cypress sweetgrass basket making

Ethel Santiago teaching Margaret Cypress sweetgrass basket making

Date
1984-02
Description
Three proof sheets with 78 black and white images (plus negatives). Santiago and Cypress were among the first participants in the Florida Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program in 1983-1984. As a master folk artist, Santiago taught Cypress how to make sweetgrass baskets. Images include them gathering sweetgrass, weaving baskets, and of Owen transcribing tapes at the reservation. Traditionally, Seminoles baskets were shallow and woven from palmetto fronds. Circa 1930, sweetgrass baskets, inspired perhaps by African American arts, were designed to represent 'authentic' Seminole culture for the tourist trade. Over time, they became traditional. 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,who was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was held each year until 2003.

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.

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.
