National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC

Took a tour of the National Museum of the American Indian in D.C. this past weekend, we happened to come on a week they were recognizing the Cherokee Nation. So, we got to see a few artists and crafters from that Nation, of course I took note of the basket makers. Asked a few questions while I could bend their ear – they use the white oak tree and wished we had more time to visit but being on a time table I couldn’t stay long. Just wanted to share a photo of their beautiful baskets. Always learning…
