Doll News Summer 2014 - (Page 52)

by Sharon C. Zerkel A little girl's voice rolled down the five and dime store aisle toward a colorfully costumed family, "Hado-ween! Had-o-ween!" She looked at her mother for confirmation. The young mother gently corrected her toddler; then quickly turned to the family with an apology. They responded with reserved, but understanding looks and continued with their shopping. I was that little girl. In the early 1950s my family had relocated to south Florida. Having never seen Seminole Indians before, I mistook their native clothing for Halloween costumes. I thought they looked wonderful in their bright costumes. I still do! (Fig. 1) Fig. 1 (Above) Seminole skirts are from the 1920s-1980s with a 1940s Seminole male doll. Fig. 2 (Left) James Billie's Swamp Safari attraction is located in the Everglades. 52 SUMMER 2014
