History Of Use
No known personal history on the donor at this time. Past cataloguing stated this basket was made by Interior First Nations people, possibly the Salish. 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 is 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 & Interior Salish. Their territory takes in from Quesnel to the Coast, up the coast of Vancouver Island, and up Bute Inlet. Their territory boarders the Carrier Territory which would make it easier to trade and to travel to this region.
