From KCET: 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 the Autry Museum of the American West and CIBA.

  1. I loved when you showed all of the artist’s hands in the basketweaving video. The only “weaving” I ever did was with gimp in Cub Scouts, but I’ve worked with tools and my hands all of my life and showing those hands was very moving to me. In fact, the whole show was. I will look at baskets in a completely different light now. Thank you.
