Learn about the process and craft of basket-weaving from members of the Ko’asek (Co’wasuck) Traditional Band of the Sovereign Abenaki Nation. Native Americans and early settlers used baskets to carry or store everyday items. Basket weaving was a skill passed down from one generation to the next. Now only a handful of people possess this knowledge. Join us as local Abenaki people demonstrate this amazing skill and share their knowledge about the process. They’ll be working with ash harvested at UVLT’s nearby Up On the Hill Conservation Area. The demonstration will be ongoing from 11am-2pm and begin with a ceremonial blessing. Other activities will include log pounding, paper weaving, and black ash identification. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.
