Description : Round cedar root basket. Simple coiled work (bifurcated stitches), watch-spring base construction, and partial imbrication. Diagonal design features shapes in red cherry bark, each separated by an undecorated horizontal row.
Fonctions : Coiled basketry traditionally had many uses. It was used for storage of foods, medicines and personal belongings. Some baskets were used for cooking and boiling water, while others had more private uses. Haeberlin and Teit (1928) suggest that in the past not all women were basket makers, but that the skill became more widespread during the early and middle twentieth century when basketry was highly collectible and it became a source of income for many local First Nations women. Basket making declined after the 1950s, but it is still present in many Coast Salish communities and interest is growing.
