This special event, Awakening Ancient Salish Sea Basketry, is sponsored by the Columbia Basin Basketry Guild. On May 18, 2017 Ed Carriere and Dale Croes will discuss their archaeology project that used both science and culture to replicate Native American cedar root baskets based on 2,000 year old fragments found near Duvall, Washington.
The event will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 7pm at the Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capital Highway, Portland, Oregon. A donation of $5 is suggested.
Dale Croes is director of Pacific Northwest Archaeological Society and Services, and Adjunct Professor of Anthropology at Washington State University. Ed Carriere is a Suquamish Elder and Master Basket Maker.
