Description
Light colour woven basket; rectangular shape with flaring sides. It has a checkered design.
History Of Use
No known history on the donor. From past cataloguing, it was stated that this basket was made by the Interior Salish, possibly the Lilloet band. The design is made with Cherry Bark and Spruce root. The Salish weavers used either a bundle or slat foundation. Large, covered rectangular storage baskets are made with slat foundations. The Salish technique was such that if the basket was soaked, it would become water tight and could be used in a method of cooking which utilized hot stones placed in the container. There are Coast and Interior Salish. From Quesnel to the coast, from Vancouver up the Coast of Vancouver Island to Bute Inlet, this is their territory. With such a great size, it was easy to trade, purchase and transport their wares all over the province.
