Black Ash Basket-weaving

Sunday, July 17, 2022

Learn about the process and craft of basket-weaving from members of the Ko'asek (Co'wasuck) Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation.

Native Americans and early settlers used baskets to carry or store everyday items.  Basket weaving was a skill passed down from one generation to the next.  Now only a handful of people possess this knowledge.  Join us as local Abenaki people demonstrate this amazing skill and share their knowledge about the process.  The demonstration will be ongoing from 11am-2pm and begin with a ceremonial blessing.  Other activities will include log pounding, paper weaving, and black ash identification.  Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
