Additional baskets from “Sharing Traditions” at Yosemite National Park

I limited my basket photographs in my last post to baskets made by the three main demonstrators at Yosemite in the last 80 years, Maggie Howard, Lucy Telles, and Julia Parker. There were other baskets at well, rooms of them. Enjoy!

Carrie Bethel was Mono Lake Paiute, and these baskets were made in the 1930s and 1940s.

Tina Charlie, Mono Lake Paiute, also made these baskets in the 1930s and 1940s.

Nellie Charlie, Mono Lake Paiute, made these beaded baskets in the 1920s and 1930s.

Jennie Washington was Southern Miwok/Chukchansi, and made these baskets prior to 1940.

Alice Wilson made these baskets in the 1920s. The basket is well-known because a photograph of her infant son inside the basket was sold in Yosemite as a postcard.

Finally, here is some work by unknown artists, various tribes.
