Assignment: Maine

Wabanaki Basketmaking

Special | 3m  | Video has closed captioning.

We meet a few Indigenous artists and basket makers demonstrating how they split and weave brown ash and sweetgrass to create fancy, utility and pack baskets that are exceptionally crafted works of art. We caught up with these artists at the annual Wabanaki Winter Market hosted by the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance and the Hudson Museum in Orono.
