My name is Carrie Hill, I am a Haudenosaunee woman from Akwesasne Mohawk Territory and owner of Chill Baskets. In 2014, I left my position at the Mohawk School in Hogansburg, New York to pursue basket making full-time. The tradition of weaving Black Ash Splints and Sweetgrass goes back many generations in my family.
I am a teacher of Haudenosaunee Fancy Basketry to children all the way to Totas (Grandparents). I find honour and pleasure in doing both educational environments and community gatherings. I am very proud to pass along this ancient tradition to my children, community and the next generations of artistic leaders.
