Harvesting Cedar Bark, 2013, Kameko Walker, Surrey, British Columbia

Avis O’Brien is a Haida/Kwakwakw’wakw artist who learned to weave cedar bark from her older sister. She explained her process to me, from offering tobacco as a means of thanking the tree, to how much cedar bark one is allowed to harvest.
