| ||Dianne Apt: Sweet Grass Braiding|
UMaine Wabanaki Studies, Moving Image, 00:07:37
Dianne is one of the only sweetgrass braiders, who braids hundreds of yards of sweetgrass, which fancy basketmakers from all four tribes incorporate in their baskets. Dianne shows how sweetgrass is picked, one strand at
a time, and then how it is braided into a three strand braid, six pieces of grass at a time. She talks about the tradition within her family and how access to sweetgrass is becoming increasingly limited.
