Angie Bulletts is a member of the Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians in Arizona. Using traditional methods and materials she creates cradleboards for infants that are used today, just as they have been used for hundreds of years. Henrietta Snype is keeping tradition alive by making sweetgrass baskets like her African-American ancestors. Both artists are working within cultural traditions passed down through the generations. By keeping the craft traditions of their people alive, they are honoring the past and passing their crafts on for the next generation. The activities in this section encourage you to examine the traditions in your own life.
