Re-Awakening Ancient Salish Sea Basketry: Fifty Years of Basketry Studies in Culture and Science
Dale R. Croes, Darby C. Stapp, Ed Carriere
This volume traces the evolution of traditional basket-making on the Northwest Coast of North America from thousands of years ago to contemporary times. The book is the result of a collaboration between Ed Carriere, Suquamish Elder and Master basket-maker, and Dr. Dale Croes, a Northwest archaeologist. Both men have spent over 50 years of their lives exploring their mutual interest in the art of basketry.
Re-Awakening Ancient Salish Sea Basketry explores the lives of these two basketry specialists; describes their analyses of the 2,000-year-old basketry collection from the Biderbost wet site, Snoqualmie Tribal Territory, housed at the University of Washington Burke Museum Archaeology Program; describes their development of Generationally-Linked Archaeology, a new approach that connects contemporary cultural specialists with ancient and ancestral specialists through collaboration with archaeologists; and details the sharing of their efforts with cultural audiences. The book concludes with the authors' reflections on the contributions that ancient sites and artifacts can make to community cultural perpetuation efforts.Show More
