Three reel to reels (also copied onto C84-112/114). Cypress talks about Seminole culture. She discusses the role of television; Mikasuki language; the effect of drainage canals on leisure activities; air conditioning; healers; marriages; parental discipline; food such as sofke and coontie palm; stick ball game; influence of Western society upon Seminole culture; education; drug use on reservations; lullabies; traditional songs; and basket making. 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. The project covered Seminoles on the Big Cypress and Hollywood Reservations and at Immokalee, Florida. Raw video footage, along with the finished product, can be found in S 1615, V84-16 through V-84-24. Images from the project can be found in S 1577, v. 23, slides S83-2994 - S83-3020.
