Freeport Community Library – Film Series: Passamaquoddy Basketmakers
November 27 @ 11:00 am
Passamaquoddy Basketmakers (1999, 28 mins) The Passamaquoddy communities of eastern Maine are the home of some of the finest Wabanaki basketmakers, and the tradition is often carried on by women in extended families. Six women of the Mitchell and Gabriel families from Indian Township have shared and passed along these traditions. Perhaps the best known basketmaker in the family was Mary Mitchell Gabriel (1908-2004), who was first Maine Native American to receive the prestigious National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, in 1994.
All films will be screened in the Freeport Community Library Meeting Room.
