ARTbreak: Black Ash Basketry: A Story of Cultural Resilience

Presented by Kalamazoo Institute of Arts at Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo MI

ARTbreak: Black Ash Basketry: A Story of Cultural Resilience

The documentary explores the Anishinabe art of making baskets from the black ash tree, a tradition now threatened by the invasive emerald ash borer. A story of family, the connectedness of life, the value of traditions, hope for the future, and a spirit of resilience in the face of change is told through the voices of local Native elders and basket makers.
Note: Look for a lecture on black ash basketry on August 24 by local experts John and Johnny Pigeon of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi
