Carrie Hill is a Haudenosaunee women from Akwesasne Mohawk Territory and owner of Chill Baskets. In 2014, Carrie left her 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 Carrie’s family and her first teacher was her Aunt.
Carrie is a teacher of Haudenosaunee Fancy Basketry to pre-kindergarten aged children all the way to Totas (Grandparents). Carrie finds honour and pleasure in doing so both in educational environments and community gatherings. She is very proud to pass along this ancient tradition to her children, her community and the next generations of artistic leaders.
