Carriers of Culture: Living Native Basket Traditions

June 8, 2006 – September 5, 2006

American Indian Museum
4th St. and Independence Ave., SW
Washington, DC

Location: Outside Resource Center, 3rd Level

Native Americans use baskets in their ceremonies, language, stories, dance, song, and for food. Through some 30 contemporary baskets, this display examines the ways in which Native baskets and their makers are literally and symbolically "carriers of culture."

This display is in tandem with the Smithsonian Folklife Festival's "Carriers of Culture" section (June 30-July 4 and July 7-11).
