Baskets have always been kind of a fascination for me. I remember visiting various museums throughout the US and seeing Native American baskets and thinking to myself, “I wonder how much dedication had to go into weaving something like that?” So when Emmy proposed her idea to the class, I was immediately hooked upon the idea of doing a project about baskets. The medium that we will be utilizing for our project will be primarily a website to display our research on. Our research will be looking at how the legacy of basket weaving has been not only started in indigenous cultures, but also looking at how it has been continued for generations even till today. We wanted to do a website because we feel that it would be more visually appealing than by presenting our facts through a PowerPoint or something to that effect. Through a website, we feel that it would be easier to display our findings and also provide enough space to put images of baskets, people, maps, etc. better than what another mode of media would provide. The reason we wanted to do this project was to show the background that goes into making baskets, like the different processes that are used for making them. We also want to look at the cultural significance of the baskets, and if they’re used to help tell stories or myths about their respective cultures. We are also going to incorporate a video of a basket being weaved to show the actual process of what goes into making baskets. The video will also show that the art of basket weaving has, like I said before, has continued on even today. For the video, we might also incorporate a poem into it to make it more interesting to watch and display some poetry that has been written about basketry. I hope that people will look at baskets not just as baskets, but as something more after looking at our project.
