Today my post will discuss the craft of basket making in New England in the 19th Century and its relationship to the Marden family. This occupation is typically thought of as “Indian work” in the Northeast, and the majority of basket makers were Native Americans. But there were also “Yankee” basket makers. Having an occupation of “basket maker” in New England does not guarantee the person was Native.
