Ten University of Wisconsin-Madison students who enrolled in the Summer 2000 Field School course (Folklore 639) focused their fieldwork projects on Southwestern Wisconsin folk traditions in conjunction with Folklore Village's plan to produce an exhibit on the region's folklife. Students interviewed over 23 people on such topics as commercial fishing, hunting, food and herb gathering and gardening, ethnic foodways, markets, and medicines, decoy carving, stone building, religious shrine building, Hmong needlework, rosemaling, julebukking, and supernatural tales. Materials include field reports, interview sound recordings, color slides, color photographs, color negatives, black-and-white photographs, black-and-white negatives, and contact sheets.

Language: The manuscripts and sound recordings are in English.
