Basketmakers Identity Project

For many years I have been fascinated by images of historic basketmakers. I believe that the talented women and men of the past who have woven their identity into their baskets deserve to be remembered individually by name rather than remaining anonymous. Many of these photos exist without record of the maker's name but in some cases additional references to their life and work can be cross matched to return the names to the faces in these old images. Periodically I intend to to post some of these photos in the hopes that the names of the basketmakers can be identified. Each of these posts will be labeled with "Basketmakers Identity Project". I encourage readers to alert me if they have additional knowledge or if they wish to suggest corrections.
