Watch as renowned Bad River basket weaver April Stone transforms material from the black ash tree (baapaagimaak) into baskets, using simple tools, and following the traditions of her Ojibwe ancestors. Hear the story of her journey to keep traditional black ash basket weaving alive among the Ojibwe people, and how she is also sharing her knowledge with the non-native community. This event is free to the public and will be located in Site 18 of the Miner’s Memorial Heritage Park.
