Florida Cattle Ranching: Five Centuries of Tradition

January 23, 2020 @ 1:00 pm

Florida Cattle Ranching

Exploring and celebrating the history and culture of the nation’s oldest cattle ranching state. Few realize that cattle first came to the United States through Florida, introduced by Juan Ponce de Leon in 1521. See and hear all aspects of Florida cattle ranching traditions, including Cracker cow-whips and unique ranch gate designs, swamp cabbage and other foodways, cowboy church and Cracker cowboy funerals, Seminole ranching past and present, occupational skills such as roping and branding, the vibrant rodeo culture, side-splitting cowboy poetry, feisty cow-dogs, and much more.

Bob Stone is a folklorist specializing in documentary photography and media production, he has contributed to numerous projects that have enhanced our understanding of the state’s diverse folklife, including Florida Cattle Ranching: Five Centuries of Tradition, On My Way to Heaven, and the Voices of Florida radio series.

This event is funded by Florida Humanities’ Florida Talks program, in partnership with East Lake Public Library.
