Ed Eugene Carriere (Suquamish): NEA National Heritage Fellowship Tribute Video (2023)

Learn how Ed Eugene Carriere (Suquamish)’s great-grandmother and more than 225 generations of his ancestors from the Suquamish Tribe taught him the 4,500-year-old art of Salish basketry. From Indianola, Washington, Carriere weaves the tale of using the clam-gathering baskets he creates to pass on the deep-rooted cultural and artistic heritage of the Salish Sea and its peoples to the next generation.
