Miwok-Paiute Basketry with Julia Parker
Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from Yosemite National Park’s longest-tenured park employee, Julia Parker. Often described as a “national treasure” for ensuring the cultural legacy of the Miwok-Paiute people in Yosemite, Julia, along with her daughter, Lucy Parker, and granddaughter, Ursula Jones, will guide you through traditional basket-weaving techniques as you create your own unique basket. You will be immersed in Yosemite’s fascinating cultural history and hear the stories that have lived on through generations of families. This program begins Friday morning in Yosemite Valley and runs through Sunday afternoon. All materials are provided, and you will take home your own beautiful handmade basket.
