The Story:

These three small, elegant baskets are made by the Nuu-chah-nulth people. Commonly referred to as Nootka, the Nuu-chah-nulth reside on the westcoast of Vancouver Island. While they are primarily for their woodworking, cedar canoes, and large multifamily housing; they also produce very fine basket work. The fourth basket is newer and made of pine needles.
