Today is #IndigenousPeoplesDay. This innovative coiled basket—woven by Carol Emarthle-Douglas expressly for our permanent collection—depicts eleven women each wearing the traditional dress of her tribe or nation. Each woman holds a three-dimensional basket woven in the style of her people and, facing outward, presents it to the world. The circle of women is repeated on the interior, where they compose a community of basket makers and present their baskets to each other. Emarthle-Douglas is a Northern Arapaho and Seminole Artist. 🖼️Carol Emarthle-Douglas (Northern Arapaho-Seminole, born 1959). Gathering of Nations, 2010.
