Southwest Folklore Center video recordings collection
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.
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.
