My antler baskets reflect the culture, heritage, and spirituality of my people. Expressive in design, the central medium in each basket is an antler. Most of my creations use a deer antler. Two, small deer antlers were placed in the headdress or “gustoweh,” of the elected chief as a symbol of his authority. The nomination and election processes relied on the protective vision of both men and women, therefore, my art work is dedicated to the concept of shared leadership between man and women. Other creations borrow antlers from our brother elk, moose, and buffalo (bison).
