| ||Eldon Hanning: Micmac Ash Pounding|
UMaine Wabanaki Studies, Moving Image, 00:06:02
Eldon Hanning, who belongs to the Micmac tribe, demonstrates the process of pounding of ash wood, which separates the wood into usable strips for basket weaving. This segment was filmed in his workshop in Limestone and focuses on Micmac pounding techniques to produce splints. The workshop segment was filmed in January, when it was more than 20º below zero and the wood had to be thawed over the wood stove before it could be pounded.
