BLACK SEMINOLE WOMAN | The BLACK SEMINOLES are a small offshoot of the GULLAH who escaped from the rice plantations in South Carolina and Georgia.

There is a 300 year old tradition of basket making among Gullah people in the coastal areas of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Gullah are the descendents of slaves brought from West Africa to work on the rice plantations. Originally the baskets were used to winnow the rice as well as for household use in the slave homes and maybe in the plantation owner’s kitchen as well. The baskets feel as strong as steel. And it is said that they can be used to hold water. Rosemary Sheel photo
