Historical Note

The Southwest Folklore Center was founded in 1979 upon the dissolution of the University of Arizona Folklore Committee. Since then it has served as an archive for folklore material. Its activities include actively researching and collecting information about Arizona's folk communities, generating outreach programs, and coordinating folk activities throughout the state.


Scope and Content Note

These videos document a range of folkways, chiefly of the Sonoran region. General folklore materials include interviews with Alexandra Romanenko, creator of Ukrainian Easter eggs; Stefan Tkachyk, Ukrainian wood-carver; and cowboy singers, poets, and storytellers. A tribute in honor of Lalo Guerrero includes performances by several celebrities of music, movies, and television. Other materials include a performance by the Gu-Achi Fiddlers and a presentation by the Richey Elementary School children in cooperation with the San Ignacio Yaqui Council.

Arco Iris Association materials consist of productions of arts programming that reflect ethnic diversity and intergenerational interaction. These include four years of the annual Evening of Native American Expressions productions. The programs consist of performances by professional and student artists, including N. Scott Momaday, Joy Harjo, Chesley Wilson, Mary Redhouse Howard, and Doreen Seton. Also present is master footage of the 1990 Waila Festival with music, food, artists, and traditional dances of the Tohono O'odham. Other productions include various storytelling workshops for children.

The Barrio Historico (Tucson, Arizona) interviews were created during 1990 by Kathryn Wilde, a resident of the barrio. She videotaped interviews with eighteen people who lived in the Barrio Historico area between 1910 and 1990; however, the recollections chiefly concern the 1930s and 1940s. Residents reminisce about the neighborhood, their way of life, school experiences, celebrations, and more. The interviews with Irene Brown, Lalo Guerrero, Arturo Carrillo Strong, Henry Oyama, and Henry Garcia are especially informative.
