About a dozen days ago, we presented at our Women’s Studies lunch gathering a film about the California Indian basket weavers, as part of our ongoing effort at educating about and promoting eco-feminism. Our theme for the year is Women Saving the Planet. We’ve had speakers about saving old-growth forest and “green halloween” and the 350 movement. And we’ve shown some films in series, including Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Matthai, Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, Blue Vinyl, and Jane Goodall: Reason to Hope.
And this other short film available here, entitled From the Roots: California Indian Basketweavers.
As is sometimes my reaction, after learning more about the subject, I made some graphical art.
