A beautifully woven Porohita (circle) in natural rusty colors by Bernie Ross
"The nostalgia I experience when weaving porohita is heartfelt. I have fond memories of my weaving tutor Bibbins Tangitu who has since passed. She was a humorous, strong, compassionate, incredibly modest and a Master Weaver. She would have abjorred being called that!
There is much sill required to weave in circles, there aren't a lot of weavers who can do this. I was privileged to have been in Bibbins classes for three years where she shared so freely, the skill to make them with her trainees. Every time I pick up a piece of flax to start the porohita, she is next to me.
