Historic Seminole images
- Eight black and white slides. From the collection of Patsy West, director of the Seminole/Miccosukee Photographic Archive in Fort Lauderdale: historic images of Seminole peoples wearing traditional dress; pounding corn with mortar and pestle; and sewing. For other historic Seminole images, see the Bedell Collection, and the John K. Small Collection, both available online at www.floridamemory.com. The images were gathered for the Florida Folklife Program's Seminole Slide and Tape Project, a program sponsored by the American Express Company in 1982-1983 to create two educational slide/tape programs for use by schools, community groups, and other educational outlets. One program dealt with sweetgrass basket making; the other on traditional Seminole patchwork. Recordings of the finished program tapes can be found in S 1576, Box 10. Teacher guides, program scripts, and documentation of the project can be found in S 1595, Box 1.
