Basketmaking keeps native American artist in touch with her ancestors.

“SPOTLIGHT” – NATIVE AMERICAN ARTISTRY – BASKETMAKER – Seneca artist Penelope Minner creates beautiful baskets, keeping in touch with her Native American heritage. This is a segment in the Native American Artistry series, produced by Paul Larson, and presented as a “Spotlight” segment on Mountain Lake PBS programs. The Native American Artistry pieces are produced by Mountain Lake PBS in cooperation with the New York State Historical Association’s Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York. This project is also a partnership with the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. “Spotlight” is made possible, in part, by the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park.
