Participants will be introduced to the art of basket making during this great workshop led by
Brian Krehbiel of the Confederated Tribes of the Grande Ronde.
Brian has 15+ years as a tribal educator. Although Brian is an enrolled member of Grand Ronde,
his tribal lineage descends from Nipissing band of Ojibway, Chinook, Luckiamute Kalapuya,
Umpqua, Iroquois, Shasta, Tillamook, Takilma, Mary’s River Kalapuya, German, Irish and
Spanish. Brian will give a short presentation on gathering native vegetation and materials,
processing, and basket making, along with how he learned to make baskets. After the introduction he will guide 15 people in making a small basket from start to finish using native
plants that he and others will provide.
