Akwesasne is known as the Haudenosaunee community with the strongest continuous tradition of basket making. Basket making is a cultural process; a way of learning about the cycles of nature and the right way to live in balance with the land by the careful gathering of materials.
Carrie is a teacher of Haudenosaunee Fancy Basketry to pre-kindergarten aged children all the way to Totas (Grandparents). Carrie finds honour and pleasure in doing so both in educational environments and community gatherings. She is very proud to pass along this ancient tradition to her children, her community and the next generations of artistic leaders.
Carrie's workshops are in high demand. Book soon.
Carrie Hill annually facilitates workshops at the Indigenous Women's Arts Conference.
To see Carrie, video start at 1:58.
