On Saturday, we spent the day at the American Indian program for our school district. While the kids played basketball and learned other fitness routines with Monty Fox, health director of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe, I helped the adults make Cherokee double-wall baskets. My cousin, Eric Jolly, a master basket-maker and president of the Science Museum of Minnesota, taught me to make the baskets and I have been trying to pass along the knowledge in our community. Here is a link to a handy how-to Laurie made a while back.
