Weaving the traditions and culture from the past with the present is the work of the Northwest Native American Basketweavers Association (NNABA). They provide and promote opportunities for Northwest Native American Basketweavers to pursue the study of traditional basketweaving techniques and forms. To display and share their tradition and teachings, NNABA offers

  • awareness of and education about the diverse weaving arts of the Northwest,
  • increased Native access to traditional cultural resources on public and tribal lands, and
  • unity and communication in social and cultural environments for the teachers and apprentices of traditional and contemporary basketweaving.

Our basketweaving traditions continue in a cultural and spiritual environment for all Basketweavers to enjoy with respect for our elders and for Mother Earth.

To share in our annual Gatherings, please visit our Events page for point of contacts and additional information.
