May Gathering – Yvonne Peterson

May 26 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT

For our May Gathering, we warmly welcome Yvonne Peterson, who will be speaking about traditional basketry weaving, the materials used and their cultural significance.

Yvonne is a sixth-generation master basketry weaver. In passing this tradition to her children and grandchildren, she represents eight generations of Chehalis tribal artisans.

“Basketry is really about the language, the songs, the cultural protocol, the passing of information as a gift.” -Yvonne Peterson

Her mother, Hazel Pete, was a matriarch of the Chehalis Tribe and established the Hazel Pete Institute of Chehalis Basketry.
