Basket weaver Abe Sanchez asked me to let everyone know that on Saturday and Sunday, April 16 & 17, he is helping to host basket weavers and wood carvers from the Seri/Comca’ac Women’s Artisans Cooperative from Desemboque and Punta Chueca on the Sea of Cortez in Sonora, Mexico at the Cabot’s Pueblo Museum in Desert Hot Springs.

Many Comca’ac women are master basket weavers, and in the photo above, they’re doing a basket dance around one of their stunning baskets.

Seri artists also are renowned for their ironwood carvings, such as the hummingbird above.

Ironwood, Olneya tesota, is one of the hardest of all woods to carve, and the ironwood trees themselves are now protected. The Ironwood Alliance was established to protect ironwood habitat and associated wildlife, as well as to protect the intellectual property rights of Seri artisans.
