about her basketry in an effort to encourage the continuation
of Native American culture.
Julia's family is her basic support group, in this video we will meet her husband Ralph, her daughter Lucy as well as her grand and great-grand Children. We will also see how the continuation of culture
begins and continues within this family and how the extended
tribal network benefits from their example.
