Inner bark for Bread

Inner bark of basswood

The green corn leaf bread is now in the packet of folded corn leaves under the jaw bone which is holding the leaves in place until I harvest some basswood inner bark fiber to “tie once around the middle”.  In the picture, I am easily pulling a long piece of fiber from the inner bark for this purpose.  The inner bark of basswood can be used as a source of fiber for making rope or for weaving baskets.
