    Baskets of Time: Profiles of Maine Indian Basket Makers

    In the early 1990s, the art of Wabanaki basketry was considered nearly extinct. Today it is a recognized as a vibrant and evolving form of Native American art.

    What saved this important art form from extinction? The imagination, hard work, and generosity of a core group of elders who had kept the tradition alive, along with the Maine Indian Basketmakers Association. Baskets of Time shares the stories of seventeen artists and families. Each profile describes how the artist learned the art of basket weaving from individuals within their family and from other tribal members. In their own words, they describe how they transform such raw materials as sweetgrass and ash into beautiful baskets that have become award-winning works of art sold in galleries and exhibited in museums, including the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian.

    Gretchen Faulkner, Director of the Hudson Museum at the University of Maine, has written an essay in which she provides the historical background for the tradition of Maine Wabanaki basket making–and the important role the art form played in the past and still plays today in the lives of in the Passamaquoddy, Penobscot, Maliseet and Micmac tribes.

    Baskets of Time is beautifully produced book that is fully illustrated with color photography of each artist and their work. It will appeal to collectors of Native American basket making; to people who are just discovering basketry art; and to those who are interested in learning the story of how an ancient Native American art form has been not only saved from extinction but also imbued with the energy and creativity of a new generation of Wabanaki artists.

    Vintage Russian Dog Sled Team

    Vintage Russian Dog Sled Team

    A dog sled team carving mounted on a hard black base. The carving comes in a box with a label with Cyrillic writing, including a date of 1974. From our research, it appears that the carving was made in Russia from bone. The base is made from Ebonite or a similar dark, hard rubber material. The back of the carving is unfinished, showing the organic nature of the material, which appears to be bone.

    Two caveats: we do not know if the carver was Siberian Yupik, or an indigenous person at all. We also suspect the carving was made from a template, because of the extreme evenness and symmetry of the features and details. Nevertheless, it is a very interesting and attractive carving.

    8 1/2 in. long x 1 3/4 in. high; base is 5/8 in. deep, while carving is thinner.

    Vintage Ivory Whale Bracelet

    This is the most delicate carved ivory bracelet we have seen. The whales are carved in bas relief on the fresh walrus tusk discs. It came out of a collection of a gentleman who lived in Alaska around 1950, so it was made late in the 2nd quarter or early in the 3rd quarter of the 20th century.

    The bracelet is 9/16 inch at the widest points. It could fit a wrist of up to 6 inches, either a child, or an adult with a narrow wrist. It is re-strung on elastic jewelry thread.

    Dorothy Savage Joseph Birch Bark Tray

    This birch bark tray by Dorothy Savage Joseph, an Athabascan Indian originally from Holy Cross, Alaska, came from the estate of a gentleman who lived in Alaska during the late 1990s and early 2000s. It has a lot going for it, including a pleasing shape, good quality bark, nice contrast between the dark inner bark and the white outer bark, and beautifully dyed root lashings (likely spruce root) woven into a checked pattern. Aesthetically, it is a great vessel all around.

    Harry Hank Baleen Basket

    Harry Hank is an Inupiaq weaver from Barrow, Alaska. Weaving baleen baskets runs in his family: his mother Marilyn Hank and his grandparents, Carl and Eunice Hank were all weavers. Most baleen weavers come from either Pt. Hope or Barrow, where bowhead whale hunting has been a tradition since the 1920’s, when the first baskets were made from this material.

    This is an even and tightly woven basket woven primarily from dark baleen, with white baleen binding on the cover. The polar bear finial is carved from walrus tusk.

    The basket was purchased in Alaska by a gentleman who resided in the state for over twenty years. It is accompanied by the Silver Hand label and tag, which certify the authenticity of Alaskan Native art.

    3 1/2 in. diameter, at its widest; 4 in. high, including finial.

    Please note that because of walrus tusk contents, this basket cannot be shipped to California or New York state. In addition, because of marine mammal material, it cannot be shipped out of the United States.

    This fish skin basket came out of a collection of a gentleman who lived in Alaska for over twenty years and collected a number of Native American and Eskimo items. The basket was purchased in 2004 from the Alaska Native Medical Center shop. While we do not know Mattice’s origins, we expect she is or was Athabascan.

    Fish skin was used extensively by native Alaskans for waterproof clothing and containers. This basket has a sealskin rim and caribou fur adornment. It is very attractive and is in excellent condition, with no tears or damage.

    The photo with a white background depicts the translucency and glow of the basket when backlit.

    David Farnham Bears with Fish

    David Farnham is a  carver of the Onandaga tribe, one of the Iroquois Six Nations in Canada.

    The two bears are carved from an unusual material: bison bone. The porous part of the bone invites a nice contrast with the more solid, polished part, both in terms of texture and color. All and all, it is a wonderful composition.

    The fish is carved from antler. All are mounted on a wood base.

    Base is 5 in. long x 2 1/8 in. wide x 9/16 high.

    The basket is in good condition with two small areas of quill loss on the edges of the basket (one visible in a photo). The flower on the cover is surrounded by raindrops, perhaps. There are two vertical lines where the birch bark shows through, though this appears to be intentional.

    Decontie & Brown Silver Necklace with Basket Weave and Rhyolite

    Made from Argentium, this necklace incorporates local Maine traditions and materials. The dark rhyolite with white specks comes from Maine, found and cut by Jason Brown. The woven ash in the medallion represents the centuries old Maine Indian tradition of weaving with wood from the sacred ash tree.

    The texture of the silver is better visible on the rear of the medallion; the texture is used throughout the entire medallion, front and back.

    The hand made chain is 24 in. in length. The medallion is 1 3/4 in. high x 1 1/2 in. wide.

    Argentium is an alloy that contains 93.5% silver (higher silver content than sterling); it is highly tarnish resistant, making it easier to maintain in humid climates.

    Jacob Simenoff Aleut Bentwood Hat

    This bentwood mask is painted red ochre color and black with traditional images of hunters and seals. It is adorned with what we believe to be walrus or sea lion whiskers. The hat presents a bird profile, and thus has painted birds eyes as well. Braided sinew strap, walrus tusk carvings of a bird and other shapes, and hematite plus other beads complete this package.

    Bentwood hats were used traditionally by Aleut, or Unangax people on their ocean hunting baidarka voyages. The hat would shade the hunter’s eyes from the sun, and also hide the eyes from their sea mammal prey. There are few contemporary native makers of bentwood hats; the signature on this hat appears as Jacob Simenoff, 1997.

    See a video about bentwood hats here.

    Hat is 16 in. long x 8 in. wide x 9 in. to the top of the whiskers.
