Lucy Nola George (1897-1978) one of first Cherokee weavers to make baskets from Honeysuckle. From article: Honeysuckle vines are flexible. To make a sturdy basket, the vines are woven over a more rigid framework of white oak. Basket weavers who use honeysuckle must be proficient in gathering both the vines and white oak trees. Lucy George preferred hickory for handles and gathered traditional woods plants as well. She used bloodroot, yellow root, and walnut bark to dye her weaving materials.
