Roots of Beauty Video

This 18 minute video uses film and weavers' voices to detail the complex processes through which Pomo Indian weavers cultivate, manage, harvest and prepare the native materials used in their famous baskets. The wealth of time, specialized knowledge, and skill involved in transforming living plants into beautiful woven vessels are unappreciated though essential components of this art. This video also demonstrates the often overlooked sophistication of Indian land use and management and raises issues of differing worldviews. Available exclusively from the Grace Hudson Museum Gift Store.
