Georgianna Houle

Georgianna Houle has been creating hand weaved red willow baskets since she was a young girl. She learned the art from her mother and grandmother who are from the Cree Family of North Dunseith ND. The Cree Family has remained strong in the traditional ways of the Chippewa people throughout their lives. Georgianna has taught the art of red willow basket making in the local schools and at the college level at Turtle Mountain Community College, UND Grand Forks ND and Minot State University.

Each basket is created as a one of a kind with the intention that no two shall ever be the same. The red willow used for each basket is hand picked as needed.
