Cedar Root Basketry

In 1993, Mrs. Aida Freeman (née Southwell) (1912-2004) donated more than half of her mother’s basket collection to the Langley Centennial Museum, and the remainder to the Historic Yale Museum the following year. The portion of the collection in the Historic Yale Museum had already been researched and documented, including biographies of the makers of those baskets. There are certain baskets in the Langley collection which correspond to the Yale collection basket-makers.

More information about Yale and Canyon Basket makers is at the Langley Centennial Museum.
