It wasn’t long ago that one of Maine’s oldest art forms—ash and sweet grass basketry—was in danger of disappearing entirely. Activists and advocates saved the tradition through a long, hard-fought struggle, preserving a crucial piece of the region’s cultural heritage. One of the people at the fore of this movement was Theresa Secord, an activist, arts preservationist, and renowned artist. In this special lecture, Secord, the founding director of the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance, shares this story as well as insights from her decades of experience advocating for artists and the arts from Maine to Hawaii.
