Wabanaki people are famous for their baskets for good reason; they are as unique and deeply tied to this space as the people themselves. Join us every Tuesday in October for a special look at what goes into the process of basketmaking from ash pounding, moldings, and dyeing splints, you will be amazed by the craft and care that goes into each weave.
