Kelli Palmer is an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation of Oregon. She has made baskets for about 22 years and still asks questions of her mother, reads books, and researches on the internet to learn more. Making these baskets just feels right to her and she continues to learn as she explores new methods and opportunities.
