Description:

This authentic handwoven Tohono O'Odham basket. The Tohono O'Odham medium bowl basket is a piece of American Indian art that consists of two parts. The warp (or inner coil) is made of beargrass. The weft (or design) is harvested either from soaptree yucca cactus (green and white) or the roots of the banana yucca cactus (red). All the colors occur naturally: no dyes are utilized.

The Papago Indians, now called Tohono O'Odham (The People of the Desert), inhabit over 50 villages within their beautiful reservation in Southern Arizona. Here they still gather the materials for their baskets as their ancestors did.
