First Nations Baskets at the Langley Centennial Museum
A- A A+


Research on the N'laka'pamux Baskets was conducted in 2005 and 2006 by Irene Bjerky, a descendant of N'laka'pamux Spuzzum basketmakers, and a member of the Yale First Nation community, and former President of the Yale & District Historic Society.

Ms. Bjerky was assisted at the Langley Centennial Museum by Lisa Codd, Curator (2001-2005) and Paul Thistle, Curator (2006-2009). Editorial assistance was provided by James Gaffney.

Conservation of the baskets was undertaken and completed by Fraser-Spafford Ricci Art & Archival Conservation, Inc.

This project, providing information and accessibility to the collection of Pearson at both the Historic Yale Museum and the Langley Centennial Museum, was funded in part by the Museum Assistance Program, Department of Canadian Heritage, and the Township of Langley.

The Langley Centennial Museum receives operating funding from the British Columbia Arts Council.
