On Saturday, Oct. 27, the Tunica-Biloxi Language and Culture Revitalization Program hosted the 3rd Annual Basketry Summit. Weavers from regional American Indian communities demonstrated southeast basket traditions using long leaf pine needle, river cane and palmetto. The Summit was an informal forum allowing weavers to talk about their own technique and elements of their culture represented in the craft. The Summit also included a presentation from guest speaker Dustin Fuqua, Chief of Resource Management at Cane River Creole National Historical Park.
