|"Amanda Wilson was born in the 1860s and by the
1880s she had moved to a Maidu village on John Bidwell's Rancho
Arroyo in Chico. She died in 1946. She was a very
traditional weaver and that is what makes hard to distinguish her
baskets from that of other weavers in her area. Most of the
remaining baskets made by Amanda Wilson are the property of her
close friends and relatives."
