This episode of the Ground Shots Podcast features a conversation with Aganaq Kostenborder, a mixed indigenous weaver, craftsperson, seamstress, and artist currently living in Oregon. We talk about her relationship to Willow, rethinking weaving with culturally sensitive plants, watching plants and learning from them all throughout the year, how baskets can hold moments in time and place, how baskets can gravitate towards the people they are meant for. Aganaq and I have been friends for years. We met up this summer and recorded this conversation August 2018 in the back of my camper.
All photos posted here taken by me Summer 2018.
