Description

This is a hand crafted Native Kumeyaay Indian pine needle basket. Perfect for decorating and also for use, this basket is made in traditional style.This is a classic example of Diegueno basketry. The design is the historical weave familiar to the southwern California tribes which is also used by other native American tribes. This basket would be a welcomed addition to any southwest, western or Native American design and would make a great gift. Each basket is uniquely hand made, actual basket is shown.

The Kumeyaay were seasonal hunters and gatherers whose individual bands ranged along waterways from the San Diego coastal region, east through the Cuyamaca and Laguna Mountains to beyond the Salton Sea in the east, and south. The Kumeyaay population finally began to revive after 1910. Currently there are about 20,000 Kumeyaay descendants in San Deigo County, about 10% of whom live on its 18 reservations, more than in any other county in the United States.
