Gabriel Women: Passamaquoddy Basketmakers

Mary Gabriel, born in 1908 on the Passamaquoddy Reservation in Indian Township, Maine, and honored as a National Heritage Fellow in 1994, tells the inspiring story of learning the centuries-old basketmaking tradition from her grandmother, and of passing the tradition on to her two daughters, Sylvia and Clare. The three women illustrate their commitment to cultural values and how they have served as mentors to others.
