WVII Covers Maine Indian Basketmakers Sale

WVII (Channel 7) reported on the 2013 Maine Indian Basketmakers Sale and Demonstration at the Collins Center for the Arts on the University of Maine campus. The 19th annual event featured baskets, carvings and beadwork, as well as demonstrations, storytelling, music, drumming and dancing. John Bear Mitchell, a Wabanaki studies lecturer and associate director of UMaine’s Wabanaki Center, told WVII a lot of the crafts featured at the sale come from traditional sources where the basketmakers go into the forest to harvest trees and split ash.
