Travels and more

Made it to Bar Harbor for the 24th Annual Native American Festival and Basket Maker’s Market. We always have a fabulous visit, got a hike in and the weather was perfect. I love seeing the newest creations and talking with the basket makers from the Land of Dawn People. Congratulated Geo on his most recent win, what an honor for him – he’s a very talented ¬†young one. Glad to see the tradition is passed on to the next generation.

I will be set up at the Seneca Pow Wow this weekend July 15 at the Seneca Iroquois National Museum tent with other artists – we will have demonstrations and talks but I will be in my place from 4-6 pm. So, if you are out in Salamanca stop by and say hello!

Next weekend, I’ll be at the Victor site at Ganondagan for their festival and I will be demonstrating at 1-2 pm on both Saturday and Sunday. A nice time to come out and see the site, meet the artists and watch the dancers.

Maybe I’ll see you out there! Have a fabulous weekend! Our hike around Jordan Pond – my reward was popovers at the Jordan House! Clouds moved in but it was still a lovely afternoon. Enjoy,

Two things…oh wait, three.

So, I’m going to be featured at the Seneca Veterans Pow Wow 2017 on July 14, 15 & 16 at the Seneca Iroquois National Museum tent along with a few other artists as well. I’ll have to post the time and day soon.

I’ll also be at the¬†Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganondagan the following weekend of July 22 & 23 for my demonstration of the black ash basketry at 1 pm both days inside. The weekend will be filled with things to do at their Native American Dance & Music Festival. A chance to come out and meet the artists, ask questions or watch them work.

In the mean time, I did what I said I was going to do in an earlier post! Finally, got to make a 10″ pack basket, I love it! It’s so cute. So, I have to do the leather strappings but otherwise it turned out pretty nice for my first time. My fellow basketeer, Holly John let me borrow her molds, so I have to make the other size and then I’ll be satisfied. Feeling accomplished. Enjoy!
