Description

  • This documentary was the result of the Seminole Video Project (1983-1984), a joint effort between the Florida Folklife Program and WFSU -TV. The film profiles Seminole craftswoman and tribal representative Ethel Santiago and addresses issues such 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. Produced by Peggy A. Bulger and directed by Mike Dunn, with fieldwork assistance by folklorist Merri Belland and Blanton Owen. Financed by a grant from the Florida Endowment for the Humanities with the support of the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
