Column: Police blow up Seneca woman's basket log

"Sometimes fame just explodes into a life.

Take the case of Hope (Boomer) Flanagan.

For years, Flanagan, a Seneca, has been known and respected among American Indians for her traditional basket-making skills. She shares her art with high school students at Anishinabe Academy, in the old Brown Institute building on E. Lake Street in south Minneapolis.

But on June 9, Flanagan's art reached a new audience, the Minneapolis Police Department's bomb squad."
