DOCUMENTARY SHORT | CANADA | 10 MINUTES | French
Charlotte is a young Abenaki artist who makes black ash baskets. She carries on her shoulders the legacy of all the generations that came before, which pushes her to learn as much as possible about her passion: basketry.
Charlotte Gauthier-Nolett comes from the Abenaki community of Odanak. Aged 21 at the time of making her film, she has been practising basket-making since the age of eight. She considers it a privilege to have been able to receive these lessons and to carry on the tradition of making ash and sweetgrass baskets, surrounded by her family.
