      Sorry, but no, this is not Salish or Native American Indian. Nor is the black design imbrication.

      This is a contemporary import from Bali, Indonesia. It's made from woven rattan, not the cedar that a Salish basket would be made from.

      Imbrication is a specific type of stitch, where the imbricated material is folded under the coiling stitch, running perpendicular to the coil. It creates a look that is often compared to kernels of corn on a cob.

      If you'd like a reference, here is a good website from the Burke Museum, about Salish basketry, which illustrates and describes the imbrication stitch, as well as the materials and techniques used: http://www.burkemuseum.org/static/baskets/Teachersguideforbasketry.htm
