The Art Of Basket Weaving

Season 10, Episode 6 of 6

Native American basketry has long been viewed as a community craft, yet the artistic quality and value of these baskets are on par with other fine art. Now Native peoples across the country are revitalizing basketry traditions and the country looks to California as a leader in basket weaving revitalization. There has been a revival in traditional basket weaving, thanks to the work of the California Indian Basketweavers' Association (CIBA), which was founded in 1992 under the slogan "keeping the tradition alive." This episode was made in partnership with CIBA and the Autry Museum of the American West.
