    Trail of Tears Art Show - 45th Year - A Mother's Anguish
    A Mother's Anguish This basket was accepted into the Trail of Tears Art Show, 45th year!  This one is titled "A Mother's Anguish"  I wished I had named it "The Sounds of Silence".   "A Mother's Anguish". This basket represents the babies that were murdered on the Trail of Tears. If a baby could not be held or quieted, the government man would snatch the baby from the parent's arm and smash its head against a tree. It wretches my heart to read these accounts. The pink and blue squares

    Bountiful Land 2014, I entered my cherokee double wall basket. It was titled "Bountiful Land"  I weaved it with commercial reed and dye. I used deer antler for the handle and secured it with commercial sinew. I also used cedar beads around the rim. This basket represented the long life of my Twist/Chuculate cherokee family.  I was awarded "Honorable Mention" and brought home a ribbon. My first award and one happy cherokee basket weaver.  Wado, Tsi-na Ge-li
