Coiled basket


Oval, cedar bundle construction, tightly, coiled basket. Dark in color with no designs. Curved sides, flare then taper at top. Braided rim is broken in some places. Sweatlodge basket, Okanagon per Lynn Harrison 1991, width: 6 3/8"; height: 6",

Cultural Narrative: 

This looks like a cooking basket, with really tiny weave, with breakage here and there and very well used. You can see the marks from the hot rocks to heat up the food. Elaine Emerson
