Description
Six color slides. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Palm Beach County was a joint venture between the Palm Beach County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was conducted between 1986 and 1987 by folklorist Jan Rosenberg with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The goal was to impart an appreciation of multi-ethnic traditions and provide a sense of place to the mobile student population. The project focused on the Florida Studies component for fourth grade students. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist, which included visits by local folk artists. In total, the project involved 15 schools with 779 students.

Fourteen color slides. Images of products sold in Meat World, a Mexican American grocery store in Pierson. Includes images of vegetables, canned goods, and pinatas. In winter 1985, the Bureau contracted with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. 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. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.

Folklife Subject: Basket Making

Florida Folklife Collection
Description
Historically, baskets have been essential items in households and on farms, especially in the days when all crops were harvested manually. Workers used these sturdy but lightweight containers to gather up cotton, vegetables, or other items and carry them from place to place. Methods and materials for constructing baskets varied widely. White oak baskets were common in the cotton-growing sections of northern Florida, while Seminoles farther south typically made baskets from palmetto. African-Americans sometimes made baskets from sweetgrass, a traditional method transferred from Africa.
