A pow-wow is a gathering of North America's Native people. The word derives from the Narragansett word powwaw, meaning ‘spiritual leader’. By presenting this woven treasure, Lorraine Black has proven to be a bit of a ‘spiritual leader’ in her own right. At the very least she can be considered a ‘leader of the band’. A modern pow-wow is an event where both Native and non-Native Americans meet to dance, sing, socialize and honor Indian culture. In her basket, Lorraine portrays a ceremonial center representing the Navajo universe and bead-bedecked dancers of various styles circling the world of her people. These guys are giving their all to the occasion—there was fun and merriment had by all!

About the artist:

Navajo Basket Artist Lorraine Black

Inspired by dreams, Lorraine Black's skills have literally elevated basket weaving to new dimensions. Lorraine Black's infectious laugh belies the serious magic her hands conjure up when weaving a basket. Unprecedented in her ideas, Lorraine's baskets are innovative and beautiful. Many of them make good use of texture through over-stitching and the addition of objects such as flint arrowheads or horsehair.
