The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis.

Mexican pinatas made by Victoria Grimm and her apprentices

Mexican pinatas made by Victoria Grimm and her apprentices

Date
1986-05-02
Description
Seven color slides. Grimm's apprentices were Maria Garza and Raquel Herrera. Grimm, born in Mexico City, learned to make pinatas from her family. She made two types: ones made completely of papier-mache, and ones with clay pots covered in papier-mache. Pinatas were used during posada celebrations, Mexican Christmas traditions that was observed the nine days before the holiday to represent Mary and Joseph's trek to Bethlehem. 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 through 2003.
