  • Sixteen color slides. Gomez was a Guatemalan Mayan living with her family in a chickee in the Miccosukee Seminole Indian Reservation. She and her daughters weaved and sold their goods onsite. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
