Photos: Library presenter shares tricks of the trade at basketry course

Instructor Kat High — who has served as a consultant to the Southwest Museum, Satwiwa American Indian Cultural Center and Autry Museum — explains the process of weaving in with the basketry reed.
Terry Moore carefully forms the base or “star” of the basket.
Instructor Kat High demonstrates folding up sides after the base is created to form the basket shape.
A fishing hat made from cedar bark is shown. Its shape is intended to provide shade and to mimic the shape of a tree. Kat High said that it fools the salmon so they can’t recognize a human shape.
