WEAVING TRADITIONS EXHIBIT FEATURED AT PIONEER MUSEUM

The Tillamook County Pioneer Museum recently opened “Weaving
Traditions,” a display featuring 62 Native American baskets, hats,
purses and other weavings from the museum’s collection. The exhibit will
run until July 24, 2012.

Lizzie Adams, daughter of Chief Illga and Maggie Adams created many of
the baskets in the exhibits.  Considered the best basket maker in
Tillamook, and the best-known, she 
taught the craft to her nieces, just as her mother taught it to her. 

The basket collection that had been on display for decades was removed
for conservation
several years ago. This exhibit shows a fraction of the collection,
which is considered by
scholars to be outstanding.

For further information about the exhibit, visit www.tcpm.org (
