Abenaki Black Ash Basket Demonstration (Part 1)
(1 Year ago) VCNAA's YouTube Channel

Abenaki Black Ash Basket Demonstration @ the 37th Annual Dartmouth Pow - Wow

 

As noted on the the Vermont Arts Council website, Jesse Larocque's black ash baskets express the living tradition of his Abenaki ancestors. The life of a basket begins deep in the swamp where Jesse chooses the right tree that will be suitable for basket making. The ash is later hand pounded, shaved, and split in preparation for being woven in the traditional manner without machines or molds.
Passing on the teachings through participation and guided practice is alive and well today and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. A true sense of mastery and accomplishment is felt by those who complete an Abenaki-style ash basket in a workshop setting."



A lot of time and effort goes into making the materials for Black Ash Baskets.
