“Out of the Indian approach to life there comes a great freedom-an intense and absorbing

love for nature; a respect for life; enriching faith in a Supreme Power; and principles of truth,

honesty, generosity, equity, and brotherhood as a guide to mundane relations.”

Luther Standing Bear, Oglala

  2. Beautiful post. Such beautiful and amazing pieces. Thank you for sharing. I was fortunate to learn to weave baskets when I was in 7th grade (many years ago :)). We had a wonderful folk craft teacher who shared basket weaving with us. I don’t remember too much of what she taught us, but I do remember how much fun I had and that it was my favorite class.

  3. Hi Eddie! I read a wonderful book based around the Native American marriage baskets. It was called ‘Medicine Woman’ by Lynne V. Andrews. It was one of my favourite books. Thanks for a lovely post.

    • I know this book and it is most excellent. You are justified in adapting it as a favorite.
      Your thoughtful words and kind remarks are very welcome Yaz. Thank you very much!

  4. Wow, the pots and baskets really are beautiful….and so different from one another! The statement from Luther Standing Bear is powerful and full of beauty as well!! Kim
