Boeda Strand (June 22, 1834 - June 22, 1928) was the "Head Basket Weaver" of the Snohomish tribe. She taught basketry to the Snohomish and to other tribes. Her original baskets are now worth thousands of dollars to collectors.

She married a Finnish immigrant, Edward Strand, on Dec. 14, 1877.

"At the age of 90 ... she was still paddling a canoe from [the] Olympic Peninsula across the Puget Sound to Seattle."[1]
