Abstract

Description

Natalie Kirk Moody is a weaver as well as a museum curator who works at The Museum at Warm Springs, located in her home community. Working with the iconic design elements characteristic of the historic art of the Columbia River Gorge, Moody integrated the symbol for Tsagaglalal (She Who Watches), a petroglyph masterpiece, as well as condor and elk, in this cylindrical root bag. Made with wool, the basket's color scheme references the coiled berry baskets of the region, which traditionally are decorated with red (red dogwood bark), white (sun-bleached beargrass), and black (mud-dyed cedar-root skin).
