Synopsis Once baskets played an integral part in everyday life in Polynesia. In todays world baskets are still made, but their overall role has changed as a result of lifestyle changes all over the Pacific. Most of the people still knowledgable of this craft are older and have not passed on the knowledge. Wendy Arbeit remedies the danger of plaiting becoming a 'lost art' through her documentation of this wonderful art and provides insight into skill that was once the standard in Polynesia. Covers Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Cook Islands & French Polynesia.
