    Skokomish (Twana) Basket with Dog | ca. 1910 Skokomish women of the late 19th and early 20th centuries are renowned as the weavers of fine, soft-twined storage and burden baskets embellished with often-complex geometric designs in reddish-brown and black on a neutral grass ground. Vertically-stacked repeating designs like this one are frequently seen, produced in a technique known as overlay twining, and have been identified as "boxes" or "fishnets" by the weavers themselves.

    Feeding the chooks May 1925

    Andy is a member of the Skokomish (Twana) Nation. He was born in Shelton, Washington in 1955. He has lived in the Skokomish community all of his life. At the age of twelve, he became aware of his culture. It was then that he learned to make baskets and to gather basket materials with Skokomish elders Louisa Pulsifer and Emily Miller. After some experimentation in different mediums he became inspired to try carving after a tour he took at the Capital Museum in Olympia, Washington.
