More than one hundred baskets from the Elsie Allen collection

The Pomo Indians of Northern California are widely considered to be among the world's most skilled weavers, and no finer collection of their baskets exists than that created by Elsie Allen and her mother, Annie Burke. Basketweavers themselves, these women broke with the Pomo tradition that had the baskets buried or destroyed after their owners died, in order to preserve a precious legacy.

This full-color book features more than a hundred baskets from their collection. Represented are twenty-six master weavers, all Pomo, who lived from the turn of the century to the present. The text of Remember Your Relations describes the lives of the various basketweavers, explaining their relationship to one another and the community which nurtured them. A wealth of archival photos collected from museums and families further deepens our understanding of the Pomo Indian community.

Published in conjunction with the Grace Hudson Museum, City of Ukiah and the Oakland Museum of California
