October 26th evening Meeting:
Speaker: Willow Bascom, "Molas and the Kuna Women Who Sew Them"Using over a hundred molas and Kuna artifacts from her collection, Willow will share lessons learned from the Kuna and their culture. What is it like to live in a patriarchal matrilineal culture? How do they deal with isolation versus contact with western culture? She will also conduct a show and tell of various mola styles, the the effect of the Peace Corps on molas, maintaining mola quality, mola fads and political commentary. You will gain perspective on our lives here and now by getting to know this intact, self-directed, indigenous people.
Ms. Bascom has also offered to judge molas owned by individuals for a separate fee ($20/mola.) She can assess quality, approximate value and time frame and sometimes tell the island of origin and the story the mola tells.
