This is a unique southwestern Tarahumara Indian hand woven pine needle basket. This basket was made by the tarahumara Indians in the Copper Canyon region of northern Mexico.

This Native technique of basket making is generations old and has become famous as one of the signatures of the Tarahumara. Handed down from each passing generation the art is preserved.
