Claudia Lima,of the National Museum of the American Indian's Blog , has written a brief introductory post about native basket weavers Delores Elizabeth Churchill (Haida), Pat Courtney Gold (Warm Springs Wasco), and Ronni-Leigh Goeman (Onodaga) and how their art reflects their culture and history.
"The more everyone talked, the more I realized how much I have to learn about Native culture.
From Alaska to New York, weaving is not just a talent, but it is also a way
of passing culture and history to generations to come. "
