    Cedar Basket Weaver - Frances Jackson
      Canada - Northern
    I was born in old Hazelton in 1941. I am Fire Weed clan of the Gitksan Nation. I spent half of my life at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward, BC and the other half back in Hazelton. I remember going out with my great grandmother at a very young age to strip cedar bark. She used to dry huckleberries on cedar mats that would fit inside the cedar bentboxes. She would alternate four layers of berries and mats to fill the boxes to dry the berries for the winter. That was my first memory of cedar weaving.

    Twined Basketry - JulieMarden
    Wampanoag US - Northeast

Twining is known from only a small sampling of surviving baskets and archaeological fragments. The traditional materials used included corn husks, grasses, rushes, bark fibers, and cordage made from native plants such as milkweed, dogbane (Indian hemp), and false nettle.
