"Weaving History" follows the production of the sally bag, "Honoring the Weaver of the 1805 Wasco Basket," to its display in Harvard's Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology. As Wasco fiber artist Pat Courtney Gold weaves her basket, she reflects on its historical, environmental, cultural, and creative influences. Among these is the Peabody Museum's original sally bag which may have been traded to Lewis and Clark. Produced in conjunction with the exhibit, "From Nation to Nation: Examining Lewis and Clark's Indian Collection."
