Renowned for the exquisite beauty and technical excellence of their basketwork, California Indians—who used basketry items for every conceivable utilitarian, social, and ritual purpose—elevated a practical craft into fine art. This superb Luisefio coiled basket, made of split sumac and natural and black-dyed juncus rush on a grass foundation, probably dates to the 1890s.
