The symmetry of Mohawk wood splint baskets
Talena Atfield, Curator Eastern Ethnology, Canadian Museum of History

Symmetry analysis performed on Mohawk wood splint  baskets dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries revealed a preferred symmetry pattern. I argue that this pattern has meaning within Mohawk society and Mohawk women were deliberately applying this pattern in their weaving. Future directives include comparing this preferred pattern to pottery assemblages and other material mediums to look at variation through time.
