It’s hard to know where to start with Bill Mackowski. Bill’s a Maine Guide, a bush pilot, a trapper… that’s plenty, right?

Well, Bill also makes traditional pack baskets and creels which are baskets for carrying fish. He’s also the recipient of a Traditional Arts Fellowship from theMaine Arts Commission. And, we haven’t even mentioned what Bill may be best known for: snowshoes.

Bill was interviewed in 2009 in the Story Bank mobile recording booth at the Maine Folk Festival in Bangor, Maine.  Photos by Peter Dembski.
