Native American quilter expands on Mohawk traditions

“Spotlight” – NATIVE AMERICAN ARTISTRY – MOHAWK QUILTER – This is the first segment in the Native American Artistry series, produced by Paul Larson, and presented as a “Spotlight” segment on Mountain Lake PBS programs. Mohawk quilter Carla Hemlock discusses how she both honors and expands on Native American traditions with her artistic pieces. 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.
