The heart and soul tI have collected Native American basketry for many years now. I love everything about them, the differences in the weaves from tribe to tribe. The heart and soul that the artist puts into each and every basket they make, I am constantly amazed at how they are able to do what they do. I hope that others can look at my pictures and see what I see in them. Enjoy the pics :) I only give permission to Collector's Weekly to use my photos per the terms agreement.

  25. Ho2cultcha, I only see this type of style basket every once in a while, and it is really hard to find one that is without damage. Those tiny 1/32 size splints are hard enough to weave through the ...
  26. Beautiful basket! It was probably made around the late 1800's to early 1910. And yes, the MicMac did make this style of basket. Also the Abenaki and Iroquois did too. This basket was made with spli...

  34. I have no idea what happened there LOL! I was going to say that it could also be Thomson tribe, they were in very close locations and used the same weaving styles.
  35. No problem, this is my favorite thing to do. I love Native American basketry and I love helping out others to tell them what they actually have. Especially when it turns out they have something very...
  36. The other baskets that I did not comment on, I am not sure of and I can't super size the pics to see the weave. I am pretty sure a couple are not Native American, there were plenty of copycats around...
